12.6.15 "Goyatherapy"; Prize for Tradición; Barbadillo Label Exhibition

The renowned bodega Delgado Zuleta in Sanlúcar has launched "Goyaterapia", a dermo-cosmetic treatment which, among other virtues, helps delay ageing of the skin thanks to the use of vine stem cells. Named after the firm’s most famous Manzanilla, La Goya, the treatment is produced in collaboration with Sanlúcar Fish Spa and the cosmetic centre Biotecnología Perlage.

This is the second such treatment to appear in the Sherry zone after the pioneering initiative by Skinwine which exploited the beneficial properties for the skin offered by the Palomino grape. The new treatment consists of mixing Manzanilla La Goya with essential oils from the grape, vine stem cells and an emulsion made from dehydrated grape pips, resulting in a massage cream which directly penetrates the skin via the lipid canal. The contribution of the wine is important as it contains resveratrol, flavonoids and anthocyanins as well as natural antioxidants which block the formation of potentially poisonous substances.

The Ministry for Agriculture, Food and the Environment (Magrama) has awarded the Alimentos de España Mejor Vino prize to the Pedro Ximénez VOS by Bodegas Tradición. The judges, people of recognised prestige in the wine sector, were unanimous.

The Museo de la Manzanilla at Bodegas Barbadillo is hosting an exhibition of wine labels from the collection of Francisco Odero Álvarez. It runs till the end of July, and consists of XIX and XX century labels from round the world showing history and iconography as well as how wines were advertised, reflecting on the social, economic and cultural state of the times.

The exhibition will be opened tonight followed by a conference on the subject by Rafael Montaño García, an important researcher and collector. Francisco Odero has exhibited his collection at various prestigious shows including IFEMA, FENAVIN and Vinoble and collaborated with El Misterio del Palo Cortado. He has also worked with bottle design books and heraldic devices. Entrance is free.
