• María Clé, winner of the Ego 2015 Fashion Talent award at Madrid Fashion Week, has designed the new label for the HOMENAJE 2015 white and rosé wines.
• Bodegas Marco Real, seven years of supporting young designers
Olite (Navarra), November 2015. For the seventh consecutive year Bodegas Marco Real, owned by Familia Belasco, presents its new Homenaje vintages hand in hand with the very best of Spanish fashion. This year María Clé has been commissioned to design the label for these wines with a delicate, floral, elegant image.
Every year Bodegas Marco Real, Familia Belasco’s first winery and one with the Navarra DO, supports the spirited fashion of great young designers brought to us by Ego Fashion Talent. María Clé, this year’s winner of Madrid’s Ego 2015 Fashion Talent has designed the Homenaje 2015 wine label, highlighting the more feminine and subtle aspects of the winery’s rosé and white wines.
For María Clé, the experience of forming part of Homenaje 2015 has made her realize that “the world of fashion and the world of wine have close ties and even more so coming from Vitoria where such importance is placed on wine. I am thrilled to design the wine label for this winery that upholds the youthful spirit of wines”.
María Clé presented her 2015 collection entitled “Fragile” in Madrid, indicating that “I have used illustrations of flowers to give a sense to the prints in my collection. I strongly identify with them. To me, the shape of a flower conjures up the silhouette of a wine glass which perfectly links my world of fashion to HOMENAJE rosé wine”.
HOMENAJE Rosé 2015 is made with 100% Garnacha grapes. It is bright, raspberry pink in colour with violet hues. Aromatically it is highly varietal with a predominance of fruit (red current and cherry) and floral notes. In the mouth it has a touch of sweetness, with an elegant, unctuous palate. It maintains its freshness throughout, leaving a very fruity aftertaste.
HOMENAJE White 2015 is a coupage of Viura, Chardonnay and Muscat varieties. Pale yellow in colour with greenish hues, bright. Intense aromas, with a background of white fruit, well complemented by slight tropical nuances. It is smooth in the mouth with a good balance between acidity and sweetness. It is refreshing and very aromatic.
Bodegas Marco Real is committed to young people and supports new designers. By backing new trends it is possible to reach younger consumers who are looking for wines that reflect their more modern spirit and that they can enjoy at a reasonable price. The winery’s annual commitment to design stirs up great expectation amongst its loyal HOMENAJE customers who look forward to discovering who is going to design the wines’ new label.
