“Costeira Sonora PERSEIDAS edition“ safeguarded against COVID19 for a magic night.
Selling out all our tickets has shown how professional Viña Costeira’s staff is, since every visitor could enjoy the experience: music, pairing dinner and astronomy.
During the night of the 13th of August 2020 a celebration took place at Toubes Manor (Cenlle, Ribadavia), which is the 4th edition of “NOCHE DE PERSEIDAS” (Perseidas’ night) and the 2nd of “COSTEIRA SONORA” (Costeira Sound). This unique new edition had everyone enjoying a concert by local artist Cora Velasco, with songs from her album “SORTILEGIOS” (spells), a pairing dinner and wine tasting guided by the Manor’s enologist. The icing on the cake was delivered by an astronomical event, known as ‘Perseidas’, against the odds of the weather forecast, and carried out by an astronomer.
The whole event took place in the open air, on an immense terrace surrounded by 9 hectares of vineyards, so as to provide individual or group space to our guests, keep safety distancing at all times, and respect the established safety protocols.
Making sure a safe wine touristic experience be delivered was the number one priority of Viña Costeira’s staff, with measures such as: mandatory face mask use, providing hand sanitizers, keeping social distancing, or an individually served dinner served so as to enjoy an exquisite menu consisting of sardine loin in Ponzu sauce (Japanese citrus-based sauce) with seasonal vegetable marinade couscous paired with Tamborá Godello wine, and cod loin baked with garlic potato wedges and tempura crumble paired with Amadeus Treixadura wine. Pork prey with acidic apples and green asparagus paired with Viña Costeira Mencía wine. For dessert, creamy cheesecake with Mencía marmalade and red berries paired with Modus Vivendi Mencía wine.
For the enjoyment of our guests, the rain of shooting stars covered the other great scenario that night: the sky. At the peak of the awaited meteor shower, also known as San Lorenzo’s tears, this moved our guests allowing us all to make a wish with every single shooting star. May the joy of merriment, toasting and smiling be with us, representing an impetus to improve year by year, because at VIÑA COSTEIRA we are putting the final touches on extraordinary new experiences wishing to share them all with you.
