We are very proud to have been able to participate in this initiative with our Wine Barcolobo 2012 , and in what is now its seventeenth edition. In total, nine live capons and one turkey were auctioned among the attendees, among whom were numerous personalities from the social, political and economic world such as Samantha Vallejo-Nágera with her son Roscón, Juan Ramón Lucas (who auctioned a capon) and her Sandra Ibarra, or the chef Peña .
It is a pleasure for us to contribute to this cause and to contribute to the success of an event in which a total of 39,251 euros was raised for the Prodis Foundation and its labor incursion program. We hope to participate in future editions to continue encouraging the participants and be able to count on your collaboration!
