Hello I am David Seijas, sommelier.
My passion is to bring wine to the people. I feel invigorated when communicating about wine. So far I have done it at El Bulli and restaurants in general, through the project of the Bulli Foundation, writing books, giving classes, lectures, and on radio and television. And I want to keep on telling stories about interesting and impressive bottles of wine.
When I’m not surrounded by bottles or visiting wine areas you can find me playing paddle or mushroom hunting during the season. I am a soccer fan and when I was younger I played the electric guitar in a group (we made versions of groups like Nirvana or Bad Religion). Another passion of mine, and as a father, is spending time with my son Pol.
If you let me, I hope to exhilirate your palate with wine and make you a little bit happier.
Hi, I’m Guillem Sanz Obach, sommelier, architect and executive director of the project.
I have always been interested in disciplines that combine a technical and artistic part such as architecture, gastronomy or music and as a child I enjoyed planning and organizing projects to make ideas and dreams become a reality.
When I’m not surrounded by wine bottles, you can find me with my family and friends, traveling, lost in nature and or listening to music of all kinds, especially rockabilly from the 50’s.
My ambition is to make this adventure possible so you have “gallina de piel” (meaning goosebumps) for many years.
FRIEND OF THE PROJECT
Those who know or have spent time with David Seijas at some time remember that, most likely, he brought a smile to your face because humor is innate in him.
Guillem is an architect but he is also that applied student, eager to listen, memorize, learn whom I discovered immersed in the training of sommeliers that takes place in the School of Hospitality and Tourism in Girona, which occupies thirty new talented sommeliers every year. It is a course in which both David Seijas and I have the fortune to participate as teachers in some sessions. We enjoy them like kids when we see the energy with which the new wisdom pushes from the roots.
David Seijas had the idea in his head of throwing himself into the business ring, doing what he does best: taste, select and communicate wine. We had a shared dream of seeing our names together on the same label, living another adventure together, perhaps more risky: making a wine and being able to apply the knowledge acquired by turning it into a product.
