Rosa Soriano Marzal, Winner of the PRIMERO ART COMPETITION 2011


Rosa Soriano Marzal, Winner of the PRIMERO ART COMPETITION 2011 Spanish artist ROSA SORIANO MARZAL Winner of Fariña's VI PRIMERO ART COMPETITION.

Her art work "Noche Serena" will be used as the next PRIMERO label which will be released this November.

Rosa Soriano Marzal, born in Benicarló in 1968 has a degree in Fine Arts. Her entry "Noche Serena", an acrylic painting on canvas, will be used to dress the next vintage of PRIMERO, the youngest wine produced by Fariña. As is custom, Primero will be released during the first week of November.

Winemaker Manuel Fariña has made special mention to "the quality of this year's entries" and "the difficulty facing the jury every year to choose the 40 paintings" that make up the year long exhibition held in the winery and on the website all year. This 6th edition has seen a record number of entries with a total of 108. Fans of Bodegas Farina on Facebook and Twitter can also view images of the exhibition. The winning artist is prized with a cheque for 3,000 EUR in addition to having the winning art work printed on 100,000 wine labels which will be distributed across Spain, Europe and the USA - a great oportunity for the artist to showcase her talent to a wider market. The jury also made special mention to artists Antonio González Rodríguez (1ª Mención de Honor), Jorge Parada Morollón (2ª Mención de Honor)and Rafael López García (Mención Especial del Jurado).


6 years ago the winery organised its first competition to chose the image of its PRIMERO wine, the region's first modern whole berry fermented wine. However, the relationship with Primero and art dates back much further. To 1995 infact, when Manuel Fariña was inspired by a Dutch customer to create Primero. For the first vintage, Manuel chose Dutch artist Van de Braak to create the label. Later, Spanish artists and current members of the jury, Fernando Lozano and Salud Parada were given the annual task of dressing Fariña's bright young Tempranillo.

Previous winners of the competition include:

Antonio Carretero (2006),

Chao Cheng Huang (2007),

Manuel López de la Fuente (2008),

Lola Catalá (2009)

and Enrique Malmierca (2010).
