Rutas del Vino de España pone en marcha la campaña #ILoveEnoturismo

Aprovechando la celebración del próximo Día Europeo del Enoturismo (8 de noviembre), Rutas del Vino de España acaba de poner en marcha la campaña #ILoveEnoturismo. A través de esta iniciativa de carácter permanente, el club de producto implanta un nuevo método de recogida de datos de demanda dentro del Observatorio Turístico de Rutas del Vino de España, el único sistema que, a día de hoy, genera estudios estadísticos sobre el enoturismo. Este nuevo modelo se basa en la realización de la encuesta al turista a través de Internet (en lugar de hacerlo en destino) una vez que haya visitado alguna de las rutas que forman parte de la marca Rutas del Vino de España.

Los datos que se recaben en estas encuestas se emplearán para elaborar el informe sobre la demanda enoturística que el Observatorio Turístico de Rutas del Vino de España podrá publicar ahora con una periodicidad más frecuente y en el que se recogen aspectos relacionados con el perfil de los enoturistas, su comportamiento en el viaje, nivel de satisfacción, etc.

La nueva metodología de gestión de la encuesta de la demanda permitirá realizar el trabajo de seguimiento durante todo el año y obtener datos muy valiosos sin necesidad de desplazar a encuestadores a cada una de las rutas, además de contar con los datos en tiempo real y referidos a cualquier época del año, no solamente a los momentos de encuestación.

Premios para los enoturistas

Pero la campaña #ILoveEnoturismo tiene, al mismo tiempo, otra faceta, pues el simple hecho de cumplimentar la encuesta puede hacer ganar premios.  Al rellenar el cuestionario, el viajero entrará en el sorteo de diferentes packs enoturísticos que Rutas del Vino de España realizará cada trimestre y que permitirán conocer nuevos destinos de la geografía nacional a los amantes del vino y de los viajes.

El proceso es muy sencillo: al visitar cualquiera de las Rutas del Vino de España (alojarse o comer en algún establecimiento miembro, visitar bodegas, etc.) el viajero podrá hacerse con una invitación en forma de flyer que porta un código promocional que le servirá de identificador para participar en el sorteo. Para ello, debe rellenar el cuestionario sobre su experiencia, disponible en la web de Rutas del Vino de España www.wineroutesofspain.com o a través de un código QR incluido en la invitación. Solamente una vez cumplimentado este cuestionario entrará a formar parte del sorteo trimestral de nuevos viajes.

Las escapadas ofrecidas por las diferentes Rutas pueden verse igualmente en la web. Cada una de ellas es distinta, pero los packs suelen incluir una noche de alojamiento para dos personas, un almuerzo o una cena, visitas guiadas a bodegas y pueblos, sesiones de cata y degustación y actividades complementarias. Los nombres de los ganadores aparecerán publicados en la web Rutas del Vino de España, además de ser contactados a través de correo electrónico.

La campaña #ILoveEnoturismo supone un paso más en la apuesta por el turismo del vino que, con el apoyo de Turespaña y otros organismos públicos, representa Rutas del Vino de España. Este club de producto se ha convertido en el referente de este tipo de turismo, no ya solo en nuestro país, sino a escala internacional, gracias a un modelo integrador y dinamizador del territorio, y a los altos estándares de calidad exigidos a los establecimientos miembros, auditados y certificados año tras año. Hoy forman parte del mismo un total de 25 rutas.

El Congreso Internacional de Enoturismo 2016 (#IWINETC) se celebrará en España los próximos días 5-6 de abril y se trata de una cita imprescindible para los profesionales del Enoturismo no sólo ubicados en España sino en todo el mundo.

Taste the 50 Great Cavas 2016 at IWINETC Barcelona

50 Great Cavas is an annual publication which reflects the history of Cava, outlines how Cava is made, clarifies the different Cava styles, spotlights successful regions and recognizes outstanding producers. Cavas are classified according to dosage and ageing time on the lees. All of the 50 Great Cavas 2016 have scored at least 92 points making them either Outstanding (Gold medal) or Highly Recommended (Silver medal).

Many wine consumers never ever get to taste any or all of the 50 Great Cavas, as many wine importers and distributors are not taking notice of the fact that Cava is shouldering with the preeminent sparkling wine producing regions such as Champagne and Franciacorta. Lucky IWINETC delegates will not only get the chance to taste many (if not all) of the 50 Great Cavas during the two day conference but also the chance to visit many of the producers.

IWINETC gets bubbling on Monday 4th of April with a choice of 3 of the 50 Great Cava producers to visit:

Agustí Torelló

Agustí Torelló Mata

Agustí Torelló Mata is home to contemporary installations and art work, dotted around the sleek, modern setting. Entering the winery, a spectacular fountain, created from the amphora-shaped Kripta bottles, greets the visitor and sets the scene for further contemporary sculptures and video installations showcasing grape growing and Cava production through the seasons.

Codorníu

Codorníu

Codorníu, known as the Cathedral of Cava was designed by architect Josep Puig i Cadafalch, a renowned Catalan Modernist who built many significant buildings in Barcelona, including a collaboration with Antoni Gaudí on the Café Torino. Work on the winery extended over 20 years, and the result is a remarkable work of art. The design features numerous cathedral-like naves. The Cellar Gran, an enormous cellar with an area of 2,000 m², which acted as the old fermentation room, is surmounted by a beautiful Catalan dome and divided into three vault like naves.

Vallformosa

Vallformosa

Owned and managed by the Domenech family, the Vallformosa winery is now in its 5th generation of wine growers. An interesting feature of the winery is the Wine Museum which houses many objects related to vine growing and wine making. One of the most beautiful settings is what they call the “Dome Room”, given its name because of the charming old round ceiling. The room looks through a glass wall to the barrels of wine in the cellar and is complimented by the original 1970s lights, combining an authentic old Spanish feel with a modern sophistication.

Visits to the above 50 Great Cava producers are sponsored by each winery and are therefore free of charge for registered conference delegates.
