The XXIV Valdeorras Wine Fair will have a luxury town crier. The journalist and writer Manuel Jabois, born in Sanxenxo in 1978, will be in charge of giving the initial kick with which the most outstanding wine showcase of the wines of our protected territory will officially start, a forum that will be held on the next 8 and 9 July at the Viloira fairgrounds (in the O Barco Town Hall).
Jabois’s proclamation is scheduled for the morning of Saturday the 8th, immediately before the institutional opening ceremony of the fair. “His talented prose, reflected in numerous columns and opinion articles and in more than half a dozen works, including several novels, and his sharp and skeptical look at current events have been two of the determining reasons for having chosen Manuel Jabois as the preacher of this edition of the Wine Fair”, highlights the president of the Regulatory Council, José Ramón Rodríguez.
“We are waiting to find out what he has to say about the godello and the rest of the varieties of our denomination of origin who, without a doubt, is one of the most notable authors on the current Spanish scene,” adds the head of the wine organization.
José Ramón Rodríguez wants to encourage all the inhabitants of Valdeorras to enjoy the proclamation and also those who decide to come to O Barco, coming from other geographical points, to taste the whites and reds of the region during the weekend in which it will take place the Wine Fair.
Manuel Jabois won the Xulio Camba National Journalism Award in 2003. During his long career, he has written for different Galician and state headlines and currently collaborates regularly with various Grupo Prisa media outlets. In addition to this, he has seven works published by different publishers, among which the novels Malaherba or Miss Marte stand out.
