Belondrade Presents: Art, Wine & Music Encounter

by Heidi Chan

Rueda wine producer Belondrade brought once again the 'X Encuentro Arte y Vin' (Art & Wine Encounter), an event filled with plenty of wine, art and live music.

The concept was first launched in 2008, since then the winery has been running this get-together every year in the June month, among the others to celebrate International Music Day. 

'X Encuentro Arte y Vin' has become the icon for Belondrade's philosophy, as winery owner Didier Belondrade sees that many aspects in wine do have a lot in common with music, and wanted to give a wonderful opportunity to share the gift of creation with all.

Located in a spectacular barrel cellar, invited 'Friends of Belondrade' were able to explore the cellaring spaces while enjoying an exhibition of painter Luis Gordillo's work (Sevilla, 1934). Throughout the event, guests were treated to special concerto performance by talented musicians including violinist Krzystof Wisniewski, where a few pieces of Beethoven's sonata for piano and violin were interpreted.

An event that you might want to join the next time you will be in Rueda!
