In Issue 16 of Club Oenologique, world-famous chef Ferran Adrià steps up to the plate as guest editor.

The driving force behind El Bulli has transformed the space where the fabled restaurant once stood, opening a museum dedicated to its culinary legacy. As it opens once again for a summer season, we look back at the El Bulli story and also take the opportunity to ask the chef about the future of gastronomy. The El Bulli Foundation’s drinks director and former sommelier Ferran Centelles introduces an ambitious series of books they’ve been busily producing on the subject of wine, and he also asks a team of the restaurant’s former sommeliers to help outline the Spanish wines that defined El Bulli in its prime.

Other themes Adrià was excited to explore in this issue include the ideas behind ‘techno-emotional’ cuisine and how the trigemenal sensations could open up the way we perceive the flavour of wine. Plus, we take a special look behind the scenes at Albert Adrià’s Enigma restaurant and also tap into Barcelona’s cocktail scene, where innovation can easily be seen as a continuation of the spirit of El Bulli.

This summer issue has an undeniable flavour of Spain running through its pages, from Pedro Ballesteros Torres MW’s Rioja wine selections to Kristiane Sherry’s top modern whiskies influenced by sherry cask. Plus, there’s Cognac, Bordeaux, Champagne, solera spirits, Paso Robles wine and Barbados rum; a tour of Scotland’s Phoenix distilleries and a spa stay among the vines in northern Spain. All this and more in this special summer 2024 issue of Club Oenologique.
