(Ibiza, 26th March 2013/FIX Ibiza): – Winter is gone, Spring is Here- it’s the time when all us Ibiza winter bods start drifting off to our hectic work-soaked summers for another season. But just before that, and with the thought of new summer wardrobes in our minds, FIX Ibiza have decided that it’s time to bring their online winter shopping project, TRASH TIENDA, to the street, or rather the square for one day only, this Saturday, 30th March, 11am-3pm.

TRASH TIENDA, a facebook group set up as much in an attempt to empty those bulging wardrobes as create an Ibiza girly online shopping community over the Ibiza winter months, has accumulated some 275 members buying, selling and swapping their unwanted clothes and cool bits over the course of this, its first Ibiza winter. Swapsies have been all the rage, ONOs have been accepted, pocket money has been made, and most importantly, new friends and shopping buddies have surfaced.

So, just before summer kicks in, and in collaboration with Ibiza’s finest sushi restaurant, Sushiya Aoyama, we’re taking Trash Tienda to Plaza sa Drassaneta this Saturday for a buy/sell/swap meet of FIX Ibiza proportions.

Flyer Trashtienda_def_jpg

Our aim with the project has been to select garments of some reasonable standard, steering away from the usual selection of washed out t-shirts (for the most part, at least!). Items have to be decent and labels are loved, if only for the bargain factor!  Max Mara, Gucci, Carvela,  Alexander McQueen, D&G, Bimba & Lola, Kickers, Pepa loves, Agatha Ruiz de la Prada, Fake London, Karen Millen, Ray Ban amongst high street brands including Top Shop, H&M, Zara, Blanco…all these and more at Trash Tienda on Saturday.

Accompanied by the springtime music of Le Fleur as well as a variety of Japanese and other activities from Waibiza and Aavib (Visual Artists Association), including Bonsai Demonstration and Reading Corner.

Kamishiba (Story Telling), this is gearing up to be a lovely, sunny Saturday, reminiscent of 2012’s Plaza de Arte in the same location- but this time with clothes!!

In order to keep our strength up for shopping, Sushiya Aoyama will open its Japanese doors on Saturday at 12-2.30pm, with a tantalizing menu for the occasion comprising of yakisoba (6€) y onigiri (3€). The island’s outstanding sushi bar will be donating a % of their profits to the Fukishima fund, a cause close to Chef Hideki Aoyama’s own heart.

ANTZ, CRAZY GOLF TALES & EASTER FUNDRAISING

Antz_Hirst_4Logos

DJ ANTZ BACK FROM MIAMI TO PLAY AT AECC FUNDRAISER

HIDDEN’S EASTER FAYRE TAKES PLACE ON SATURDAY, 30TH MARCH

 

(FIX IBIZA/25th MARCH 2013):  DJ, music producer, fundraiser and, in a recent revelation, golfer, Ibiza resident Anthony Bryans- ANTZ– is a man with very many talents. In the latest of a long list of his moves and shakes, the London born DJ is once again behind the fundraiser for the local branch of the Spanish Cancer Association (AECC), flying in from Miami especially for the event at Hidden Bar, Ibiza, on Saturday 30th March 2013.

In a winter that has seen Antz mostly locked in a studio ear-deep in a very special music collaboration in full swing (more details soon…), Bryans has also been involved in raising the profile of the AECC through his continuing voluntary work with the association, in the form of a number of fundraising initiatives including this, the Easter Fayre in Cala San Vicente, from 12pm-6pm.

Flying straight in from his visit to Miami, where his activities included a few rounds of golf with former racing driver and founder and owner of Jordan Grand Prix, Eddie Jordan, in a game organised by no less than World Number One and a two-time major champion golfer, Rory McIlroy MBE, Antz decided to put the golf clubs down, leave the Miami Music Conference to its own devices and fly back in order to be present at the event at Hidden, arriving back on the island just in the nick of time to DJ at the Easter Fayre.

Antz, who himself kicked cancer firmly to the kerb several years ago, first became involved with raising awareness of the local AECC association a year ago, through a meeting arranged by FIX Ibiza’s Jillian Canney with the Ibiza & Formentera branch of the AECC’s Vice-President Sue Mari. Since then, momentus has grown with other future efforts for the AECC including the upcoming 1st Ibiza Charity Polo Cup organised by local company, Ibiza Delivers.

 

The 2nd AECC fundraiser at Hidden Bar, Ibiza – An Afternoon of Fun, Fundraising and Cocktails.

hidden_BC_front_crop

‘Hidden’– literally, in the bay of Cala San Vicente– is the perfect location for a fundraiser of this nature. Evoking memories of Alice in Wonderland’s charming quaint dreamland, weathered bunting and china cups amongst the giant chess pieces and crazy golf course, organisers plan an Easter Fayre with definite references to the ideas and ideals of a good old traditional Easter Fayre.

Bring and Buy stalls, Arts & Crafts, Raffle, Tombola, Crazy Golf, Easter Egg hunt, Easter Bonnet competition, face-painting- just some of the activities in store on Easter Saturday,

Other Easter treats include Hot Cross buns and Easter cakes, plus a selection of cocktails from acclaimed mixologist Chris Edwardes.

In the kitchen: Michael Arthur and Pedro Cervero.

Ibiza Rocks 2013: Franz Ferdinand, Bastille, The Other Tribe…

IR_LOGO_2013-1

FRANZ FERDINAND

 

BASTILLE, CHASE AND STATUS, TINIE TEMPAH

Y THE OTHER TRIBE

EN DIRECTO BAJO LAS ESTRELLAS DE IBIZA

JUNTO CON JAKE BUGG, RIZZLE KICKS, THE VACCINES, EXAMPLE,

 ELLIE GOULDING, DIZZEE RASCAL, FOALS, PALMA VIOLETS, JAGWAR MA Y REDLIGHT

Ibiza, 21 de marzo 2013 (FIX Ibiza).- Ibiza Rocks es garantía de buen tiempo, alojamiento moderno y 16 semanas de fantásticos conciertos bajo las estrellas. Se une al impresionante cartel Bastille, la banda emergente más de moda del momento en Reino Unido debuta en Ibiza Rocks. Chase and Status y Tinie Tempah, dos de los artistas más influyentes de los últimos 5 años vuelven a la isla con nuevos discos y nuevos shows junto con una de las bandas más importantes de la década, Franz Ferdinand. Cuatro cabezas de cartel de excepción en directo en el único festival de sus características de Baleares.

Han reventado las listas de éxitos con su hit Take Me Out y su álbum debut en 2002. La banda de Glasgow Franz Ferdinand pisará por fin, Ibiza. Han ganado un Mercury Prize, un BRIT al mejor grupo británico y otro al mejor directo británico, Premios NME, varias nominaciones a los Grammy, han vendido unos 3 millones de discos en todo el mundo y próximamente publicarán su esperado cuarto álbum de estudio. La banda ha sido una gran influencia para el grupo Ibiza Rocks, ayudando a desarrollar nuestro concepto a la hora de promover conciertos: ‘dance kids who rock and rock kids who dance’. Ibiza Rocks se enorgullece de traer hasta la isla a una de las mejores bandas en directo por primera vez al mejor escenario al aire libre la isla de Ibiza.

Alex Kapranos afirma: “Es la primera vez que actuaremos en Ibiza Rocks y estamos deseándolo. Paul estuvo allí y nos lo contó todo, así que esperamos con ganas al gran público de la isla”.

Bastille, el grupo liderado por el cantante y compositor Dan Smith, acaba de sacar su álbum debut Bad Blood, con el que han saltado directamente a la cima de las listas de éxitos del Reino Unido. Con su segundo single, Pompeii, se han apropiado de las ondas radiofónicas de toda Europa. Uno de los conciertos que hay que ver en la escena de festivales de este verano se incorpora al cartel de Ibiza Rocks. Los teloneros de la noche serán la banda de Bristol The Other Tribe. Defendidos tanto por los amantes del indie como de la música electrónica, la banda cruza fronteras musicales y su glorioso nuevo single Skirts es tan pegadizo como su directo.

Dan Smith, líder de Bastille afirma: “Estamos ansiosos por escaparnos a Ibiza por primera vez. Poder tocar y después ir a la playa será una gran novedad para nosotros y será fantástico tener un poco de verano de verdad. He escuchado que los conciertos en Ibiza Rocks son fabulosos y me han dicho que hay una fiesta bastante digna así que habrá mucha diversión”.

Chase and Status son, sin duda, una de las bandas británicas más fascinantes y de éxito de esta década. Su segundo álbum No More Idols vendió unas 600.000 copias en Reino Unido y más de 2 millones de singles, consiguiendo dos discos de platino. En Reino Unido fueron la banda que más vendió en 2011, detrás de Coldplay, colgando el cartel de ‘no hay entradas’, gira tras gira, en Europa, los Estados Unidos y Australia y solo el verano pasado tocaron en 36 festivales de todo el mundo. Su fenomenal tema Big Man con Liam Bailey es una muestra de lo que será su esperado tercer álbum, que está previsto que se publique en verano.

Chase and Status afirman: “Estamos emocionados con volver de nuevo con nuestro show a Ibiza Rocks este verano. ¡El público de Ibiza Rocks es siempre increíble!”

Tinie Tempah es ya un habitual en el escenario de Ibiza Rocks y sus shows siempre tienen algo de especial. La última vez que actuó saltó del escenario y dejó pasmados a los fans volviendo a aparecer en el balcón de una habitación. Su single de debut Pass Out fue una bomba en todo el mundo y los siguientes temas FriskyWritten in the Stars y Miami 2 Ibiza, consiguieron el mismo efecto. Su primer disco Disc-Overy todavía se recuerda como uno de los debuts más innovadores e infalibles de entre los estrenos del Reino Unido de todos los tiempos. Vuelve a la isla para liderar un espectáculo donde seguro que mostrará nuevo material de su esperadísimo segundo discoDemonstration y con un show de alto voltaje, cargado de hits y de sorpresas.

Bastille, Franz Ferdinand, Chase and Status, Tinie Tempah y The Other Tribe se unen al cartel junto con los artistas ya anunciados anteriormente: Jake Bugg, Rizzle Kicks, The Vaccines, Example, Ellie Goulding, Dizzee Rascal, Foals, Palma Violets, Jagwar Ma y Redlight. MTV UK acercará a millones de personas a la acción con las retransmisiones en exclusiva a través de MTV Music y MTV Live HD.

En las próximas semanas anunciaremos más artistas, bandas y Dj’s de vanguardia para empezar a planear las vacaciones de verano a Ibiza, desde el 5 de junio y hasta el 18 de septiembre.

FRANZ FERDINAND CONFIRMED FOR IBIZA ROCKS!

IR_LOGO_2013-1

FRANZ FERDINAND, BASTILLE, CHASE AND STATUS, TINIE TEMPAH

AND THE OTHER TRIBE

TO PERFORM LIVE UNDER THE STARS IN SAN ANTONIO

JOINING JAKE BUGG, RIZZLE KICKS, THE VACCINES, EXAMPLE,

 ELLIE GOULDING, DIZZEE RASCAL, FOALS, PALMA VIOLETS, JAGWAR MA & REDLIGHT

 

Ibiza, 21st March 2013 (FIX Ibiza): As per the last eight summers, Ibiza Rocks guarantees hot weather, cool accommodation and 16 weeks of phenomenal live gigs right in the heart of San Antonio. Joining the already impressive line up for 2013 are Bastille – the hottest new breakthrough act making their Rocks debut, Chase and Status and Tinie Tempah – two of the defining artists of the past 5 years coming back with new albums and bigger shows and not to mention one of the most important guitar bands of the decade, Franz Ferdinand. Four chart-topping exceptional live acts for back-to-back headline shows in Ibiza.

Having first smashed the charts with their killer hit Take Me Out and their self-titled debut album in 2002, Glasgow boys Franz Ferdinand are back, and Balearic bound. They’ve ticked off a Mercury Music Prize, BRIT Awards for Best British Group and Best British Rock Act, NME Awards, multiple Grammy Award nominations, sold over 3 million albums worldwide and are soon to release their hugely anticipated fourth studio album. This band were a huge influence on Ibiza Rocks, helping fuel the concept of promoting gigs for ‘dance kids who rock and rock kids who dance.’ Ibiza Rocks is exceptionally proud to be bringing one of the world’s best live bands to make their debut on the famous open-air Ibiza Rocks stage this summer

Alex Kapranos said: “This is the first time we’ve been to Ibiza Rocks, so are looking forward to it. Paul’s been and told us all about it, so we’re expecting a great crowd.”

Franz Ferdinand

Bastille’s just released debut album Bad Blood went straight to the top of the UK album charts, with No.2 single Pompeii taking over the airwaves across Europe. Fronted by UK singer/songwriter Dan Smith, this is a ‘must see’ live act on the festival scene this summer and Ibiza Rocks is delighted to have Bastille on the bill.  Support comes from hotly tipped and indefinable Bristol mob The Other Tribe.  Championed by both indie and electronic music lovers, the band cross musical boundaries and their illustrious new single Skirts is as infectious as their live set.

Bastille’s Dan Smith said: We’re really looking forward to getting out to Ibiza for the first time. Being able to play a gig and then go to the beach will be a massive novelty, and it’ll be nice to see a bit of proper summer and try to head to some of the massive clubs as well. I hear the Ibiza Rocks gigs are great and we’ve been told they throw a pretty decent party so it should be a lot of fun.”

Chase and Status are undoubtedly one of the most exciting and successful British bands of the past decade. Their double platinum, second album No More Idols sold over 600,000 copies in the UK alone and spawned over 2 million singles. They were the biggest selling band in the UK in 2011, behind Coldplay, sold out tour after tour in the UK, Europe, US and Australia and played live at 36 festivals around the world last summer. Phenomenal track Big Man with Liam Bailey has provided a taster of what’s to come from their highly anticipated third album, due for release in summer.

Chase and Status said: “We’re excited to bring our live show to Ibiza Rocks again this summer – the crowd is always amazing!”

 

Tinie Tempah is neither a stranger to the Ibiza Rocks stage and always puts on an extra special show – last time he performed he bound off stage, stunning one group of fans by reappearing to perform from their bedroom balcony! Since becoming the undisputed breakout star of 2010, Tinie’s career has soared. Debut single Pass Out exploded around the globe and follow up tracks Frisky, Written in the Stars and Miami 2 Ibiza all had the same effect. Debut album Disc-Overy is still regarded as one of the most refreshing and confident UK debuts of all time.  Back to headline, live under the stars, Tinie Tempah is sure to showcase new material from his highly anticipated second album Demonstration and to put on a high-energy show packed with smash hits and more surprises.

Franz Ferdinand, Bastille, Chase and Status, Tinie Tempah and The Other Tribe join previously announced acts Jake Bugg, Rizzle Kicks, The Vaccines, Example, Ellie Goulding, Dizzee Rascal, Foals, Palma Violets, Jagwar Ma and Redlight on the incredible line-up of chart-toppers and festival favourites who are set for Ibiza Rocks this summer. MTV UK will be the exclusive TV host, bringing millions of people closer to the action when it broadcasts the live footage on MTV Music and MTV Live HD.

More ‘must see’ solo stars, bands and cutting edge DJ’s will be announced over the coming weeks, so fans can forget the mud and rain this summer and start looking forward to the gig, and holiday of a lifetime on the white island of Ibiza.

Offering a choice of quality accommodation options at exceptional value, Ibiza Rocks every Wednesday from 05 June to 18 September.  Announced so far below, with much more to come:

AN ECUMENICAL MATTER FOR ST.PATRICKS DAY

733751_10152605631845123_500043563_nTHE 1ST FATHER TED FEST TO TAKE PLACE AT FATHER JACKS IRISH PUB

 

‘NUNS &PRIESTS’ SET FOR THE ST.PATRICKS SHENANIGANS ON

SUNDAY 17TH MARCH 

(FIX/IBIZA//15TH MAR 2013) On an island like Ibiza, where, unlike many other parts of the world, lets face it, there aren’t actually that many Irish emigrants or Irish pubs for that matter, and what with one half of FIX IBIZA being a pure green-blood, we decided it would only be right to throw a petite shindig on ST.PATRICKS DAY for all us Irish and Wannabe Irish on our most important day of the year and also, our biggest excuse to get suckin’ on the aul’ diesel…Sunday 17th March is the big, green day of choice.

We’ve chosen probably the only Irish pub open on the island this Sunday, FATHER JACKS, in Figueretas as the location for this, the first Father Ted Fest on the island, combining our love of St.Paddy’s with our love of all things Craggy Island. The event will be a homage to Fathers Ted, Dougal and of course, dear old Jack, and of course, to the late, great Dermot Morgan, creator and star of the hilarious TV series, who died whilst filming the last episode of Father Ted, back in 1998. God Rest Him…

The party will pretty much be a daylong affair and one for all the family, and since the pub opens at 10am till 3am, there’s plenty of time to nip in for a pint of the old Gee-Gee throughout the course of the day.

In keeping with the Craggy Island spirit, we plan a number of activities throughout the course of the Ted Fest including:

  • The Lovely Girls Competition
  • The Sheep Throwing Challenge
  • The Confessional Box
  • The Parish Hall Céilidh
  • A Quick Pray

and more stuff and nonsense as it occurs to us…

2013-03-15 14.56.58

GETTING INTO THE SWING ALREADY! SISTERS LEANNE & HAYLEY

And the there’s the music…and a total coup for the Ted Fest, as we are proud to present, in their premier gig on the island, THE FOLKIN’ HOBOS! The recently formed three piece composed of Angie Smith, Joan Espinosa Molina and Aurelio XXX promise a musical medley of folk, rock n roll, country and a few Oirish diddies thrown in to mark the occasion and will grace our modest stage from 8pm.You don’t want to miss this one!

There’ll also be plenty more ceol agus craic, Irish Stew throughout the day, a bit of football for the boys in the afternoon and of course, Mrs. Doyle will be on hand all day with her infamous unending pot of tea and huge plate of sandwiches…

ROUGH SCHEDULE:

10AM: OPEN!

12PM: GET THE STEWS ON…

2.30PM: SUNDERLAND VS NORWICH

5.00PM: CHELSEA VS WEST HAM

7PM: GATHERING OF THE CLERICS

8PM- 8.30PM: THE FOLKIN’ HOBOS MAKE THEIR DEBUT

8.30PM: SHEEP THROWING CHALLENGE//CONFESSIONS//A QUICK PRAY

9.30-10.15PM: THE FOLKIN’ HOBOS

10.30PM: THE LOVELY GIRLS COMPETITION

11PM: TIME FOR A CEILIDH

12AM: DRINKING, SINGING, DANCING, LAUGHING, CRYING, NO FIGHTING!

DRESS CODE! This is important. Basically, it’s all about the nuns and the priests…we want to see plenty of each…and if there are any bishops in the house, do come on down…Think of it like a little convention…

If you can’t manage that, then try to look at least a bit like a Craggy Island Resident or just come dressed in green and you’ll be laughing…

URBAN IN PARLIAMENT!

‘URBAN IN IBIZA’ set to represent the island as part of LNADJ’s historic event inside the British Houses of Parliament

 Urban in Ibiza co-curator, INKIE, confirms live paint at the event

(6th March 2013/FIX/Ibiza): 

As far as historical turning points go, URBAN IN IBIZA’s recent announcement really took the proverbial biscuit with their unveiling of their charity foundation meets art project ‘SMILE BRITANNIA’, due to be launched today, Wednesday, May 6th inside the U.K Houses of Commons, in conjunction with the ‘Last Night a DJ Saved My Life Foundation’.

The LNADJ event is one that organisers have been planning for quite some time, and which today, becomes a reality. As part of the initiative, Urban in Ibiza’s curator, INKIE, will do a live paint at the event, most definitely the first of its kind to take place in the hallowed halls of the House of Commons, in the U.K’s capital city, London.

Contemporary artist RYCA will also be in attendance with his iconic ‘Mega Smiley’ image. Both artists will be producing limited edition prints for all attendees, as well as large scale pieces for display.

Urban in Ibiza’s creator and partner in the Westbank Gallery London, Paul ‘Dizzi’ Saunders, who has played a key role in the realization of the project, said of today’s fundraiser, “It’s a joy to be involved in such a historic event. Seems like only yesterday we were marching on Parliament for the ‘Freedom to Dance’ movement. Twenty-five years later, I’m welcomed with open arms; walking in the front door with a 2m high Smiley and one of the biggest DJs in house music, all to promote a government backed charity. This year is set to be our biggest yet in so many ways. Sons of Warhol are coming! Onwards and upwards.”

But that’s just the half of it. Step up, Norman Cook, much better known as FatBoy Slim, for he is the main man set to make dance music history by being the first DJ ever to play inside the House of Commons. Backing him up, the world’s most adventurous cellist, Matthew Barley, & young visionary beat poet, Sonny Green. Bryce Fury, the winner of Westbank’s national DJ competition, House the House, will also be showing us what he’s made of in the music department.  Could this whole thing be any more exciting?!

The event is hosted by Mike Weatherley, MP. Former music executive Mike, also champions Rock the House & Film the House competitions.

This is one seriously cool, seriously urban and seriously historic happening.

‘Una Tarde Campestre de Vinos’ / Feria de Vinos by WineList / Lunes 11 Marzo 2013

WineList presenta 

‘Una Tarde Campestre de Vinos’

Por primera vez, un evento de estas características reunirá en un escenario singular como es el agroturismo de Puig d’en Valls, a los propietarios y enólogos de una cuidada selección de bodegas cuyos vinos se distribuyen en exclusiva en Ibiza a través de WineList, una empresa que nace en la primavera de 2012 con el objetivo de ofrecer en la isla referencias modernas y originales, vinos especiales y a buenos precios.

La tarde campestre de vinos organizada por WineList contará, entre las 16:00 y las 20:00 horas, con Miquel Coca i Fitó (propietario de Coca i Fitó), Luis Barrero(propietario de Viñedos Singulares) y Manel Castillo (distribuidor comercial de Grandes Vinos y Viñedos y Beso del Vino), en una cita a la que están convocados restauradores y hosteleros. “Presentaremos vinos de bodegas familiares, elaborados con mucho mimo y dedicación de producciones pequeñas que expresan todo el carácter que la tierra de la que proceden”, explica Elena Miragall, propietaria de WineList y gestora de esta iniciativa

A continuación, repasamos las bodegas que nos acompañarán en la Tarde Campestre de Vinos:

Coca i Fitó – Miquel Coca i Fitó, junto a su hermano Toni y originarios del Alt Penedés son hijos de agricultores y criados entre viñas. En 2006 iniciaron la elaboración de vinos singulares en la DO Montsant bajo la marca Coca i Fitó. Toni ya contaba con una larga trayectoria en la elaboración de vinos como director técnico y consultor en pequeñas bodegas familiares en diferentes zonas de Cataluña. Toda su carrera profesional y formativa ha estado siempre dedicada al mundo del vino. Por su parte Miquel Coca, con formación como cocinero y en el comercio exterior, se dedica a la parte de imagen y comercialización de la bodega. Coca i Fitó nace del deseo de elaborar sus propios vinos. Caldos con los que transmitir nuevas experiencias con la identidad de un territorio. Vinos de calidad que se identifican con el entorno, femeninos y de estructura moderna.

Actualmente exportan el 70% de su producción entre 25 países de América, Europa, Asia y Oceanía.

El pasado 25 de febrero, bajo el título ‘Tintos españoles que emergen de las sombras’, The New York Times calificaba a la región de DO Montsant de “descubrimiento” y “ejemplo de transformación del negocio del vino en España”. Coca i Fitó fue uno de los 10 vinos catados para el artículo.

WINELIST presents ‘An Afternoon of Wine Tasting in the Countryside’, Monday 11th March, Ca n’Arabi, Ibiza

Captura de pantalla 2013-03-04 a las 15.12.02presents

‘An Afternoon of Wine Tasting in the Countryside’

The mini wine fair will feature the vintners and winemakers Coca i Fito, Corona de Aragón, Beso del Vino and Viñedos Singulares

New York Times reviews Coca i Fito in a recent article on the changing nature of the Spanish wine market and the DO Montsant region

The event takes place in the rural hotel, Ca n’Arabi on Monday March 11th, 4pm-8pm

(6th March 2013/FIX/Ibiza): What could possibly beat a lovely afternoon in the Ibiza countryside except a lovely afternoon of Wine Tasting in the Ibiza Countryside?! Next Monday, 11th March and that’s exactly what will be occurring in the rural hideaway hotel of Ca n’Arabi, when local wine merchants / sommeliers, WINELIST, have the pleasure of hosting an afternoon of fine wines from three of Spain’s finest vineyards. Amongst the selection, Corona de Aragón and Beso del Vino, Viñedos Singulares and Coca i Fitó, as well as references from Cavas Durán, Joaquín Rebolledo, Valserrano or Val Magrigal, amongst others.

This is set to be no run of the mill tasting, mind you. It will be the first time an event of these characteristics has been hosted in a setting such as the rural hotel in Puig den Valls, with such a selection of owners and winemakers, all of whose wines are distributed exclusively on the island of Ibiza by Winelist, a company that was founded in 2012 with the objective of providing modern references; original and special wines and all at reasonable prices.

An Afternoon of Wine Tasting in the Countryside will take place between between 4-8pm at Ca n’Arabi with key guests including Miquel Coca i Fito (owner of Coca i Fito), Luis Barrero (owner of Viñedos Singulares) and Manuel Castillo (commercial distributor of Grandes Vinos y Viñedos and Beso del Vino).  A number of the island’s restauranteurs and hoteliers have also been invited to attend and should expect a ‘presentation of fine wines from family-run wineyards’.

“We will present a selection of wines from family wineries, each prepared with great care and dedication, typical of the wineyard and its family traditions. The flavours in these wines express the very character of the land from which they came,” says Elena Miragall, Winelist owner and manager of this particular initiative.

To follow, a brief guide to the wineyards being represented at this, the first Wine Tasting Afternoon in the Countryside.

Coca i Fitó – Miquel Coca i Fitó, together with his brother, Toni, hails from Alt Penedés. Sons of farmers and reared amongst the vines, it was in 2006 that they decided to initiate the development of unique wines of DO Montsant, under the n of Coca i Fito.

By that time, Toni Coca already had a long history of winemaking as technical director and consultant on a number of small family wineries in different areas of Catalonia. His entire career and training has been dedicated to the world of wine. Miquel Coca, meanwhile, trained as a chef and in foreign trading and is dedicated to the image and marketing of the winery.

The brothers currently export 70% of their production to 25 countries in America, Europe, Asia and Oceania.

The original idea behind this project was rooted in the the desire of both siblings to produce their own unique wines with which to convey new experiences, reminiscent of their origins. These are quality wines that identify with their environment, feminine and well-structured.

On February 25th, under the title ‘Spanish Reds emerge from the shadows’, The New York Times described the DO Montsant region as a  ‘discovery’ and an ‘example of the transformation of the wine business in Spain’. Coca i Fito’s was one of the 10 wines tasted for the article.
