An evening of Flamenco jazz and Faustino Rioja; a perfect pairing from Spain is coming to tour the U.S.! Bodegas Faustino, a classic Rioja winery founded over 150 years ago, is sponsoring a flamenco jazz tour with musicians Josemi Carmona and Javier Molina. The De Cerca tour – or “at a short distance” – will launch on March 8 in New York at Instituto Cervantes, the center for Spanish language and cultural studies. Additional cities will include Washington, DC, Miami, Chicago, and Boston.
Josemi Carmona is a musical legend on flamenco guitar and has led the modern revival of flamenco together with Javier Colina on double bass. Their live performance captures a conversation in a moving dialogue that transcends time and musical languages, bridging the distance between cultural spaces. Bodegas Faustino will match the artistry of the De Cerca tour with a tribute to the profound estate wine tradition of Rioja. Guests in New York will experience a private performance at the Instituto Cervantes followed by a reserve wine tasting, including the 1964 Faustino I Gran Reserva, one of the most acclaimed vintages of the past century.
Founded in 1861, Bodegas Faustino is a family-owned winery with 1600 acres of estate vineyards in the upper part of Rioja Alavesa. A leader in reserve winemaking from Rioja, Faustino I is the most widely-sold Rioja Gran Reserva in the world. For more information about Bodegas Faustino visit www.bodegasfaustino.com.
