On the last Wednesday in May an event took place in the Loidi Restaurant in Barcelona which was a true example of solidarity. The “Tapas y Bodegas” event, which the restaurant organized with great success and thanks to the customary mastery of the host, Basque chef Martín Berasategui, served to support the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation.

Bodegas Dominio de Cair could not miss the opportunity to be part of such a noble gesture, which with the cocktail-dinner format, also launched a new terrace tapas menu for the Loidi restaurant. Moreover, Martín, the Spanish chef with the most Michelin stars to his name, made everyone feel completely at home, greeting and serving those present with his typical natural, friendly charm.

This time it was Bodegas Dominio de Cair who represented the Luis Cañas Family, although wines from the three cellars have a strong presence on the Barcelona restaurant’s wine list.

Oscar Fernández, Mein Host and Sommelier, led his team masterfully to ensure everyone enjoyed great cuisine, some fantastic wines and, last but not least, some marvelous company.

“Everybody must know the magic of the culture of wine, its gastronomy and the leisure activities surrounding it”

With this in mind, last March saw the presentation of “The Visit” of Aranda in Dominio de Cair.

This novel wine tourism project sprang from an initiative of 7 successful Arana de Duero-based businesses: Bodega Dominio de Cair , Casa Florencio, , Hotel Villa de Aranda, , La Traviesa, Galería de Arte Rodrigo Juarranz, Bodega López Cristóbal and Bodega Histórica Don Carlos. They brought together all their combined prestige and joined forces to present a single marketing package with a quality label and look for synergies in order to take on the challenge of selling the Ribera de Duero quality label through wine tourism packages. A video shows off the culture, gastronomy and wine and leisure attractions that the project’s partners offer visitors.
