in January



January was a very busy month for Clara with a packed trip to Madrid involving two big fairs and wine tastings in some wonderful venues. It was a great opportunity for catching up with colleagues and presenting the Ariyanas wines to many interested professionals as well as members of the public.



Fitur 17


FITUR is a yearly international tourism trade fair held in Madrid, a global meeting point for toursim professionals. The scale is huge - this year there were nearly 10,000 exhibiting companies, 140,000 trade participants, 110,000 visitors and 7,500 journalists.




AEE en FITUR '17The Asocición de Enoturismo de España (AEE) an organisation promoting Eno-tourism in Spain, this year took part with its own stand for the first time. Bodegas Bentomiz also participated and were involved in video presentations, with the Ariyanas wines presented by Clara and the Terruño Pizarroso featuring in the masterclass given by Pedro Ballesteros.  






Daniel Casares, our internationally renowed flamenco guitarist, warmed up in the bodega's office before he was introduced by Clara and gave a wonderful performance. His beautiful music is more emotionally intense then ever in live performance. It couldn't have been heard in a more beautiful setting, with the beautiful hills and mountains rising behind him as, little by little, the light faded and sunset spread colour across the sky.




We served our guest


After dinner Daniel was joined on stage by the magnificent Robin Torres. She has a beautiful voice that, with Daniel's guitar filled the audience with sweet, melancholic delight. Our hard-working staff came out of the building to listen. I believe even the cicadas, used to making their crackling-static noise all night long, fell silent and listened, too!




Later, as the guests were leaving we heard one question over and over. 

"When will you do it again?

So much enthusiasm can't possibly be disappointed. Future events, from concerts to private parties lie in wait. Watch this space!
