In 1992, Enate began a contemporary art collection, bringing together works by Spanish and international artists. Since then, each of our wines has been associated with a well-known painter, with a work painted specially for our winery appearing on the label. Antonio Saura, a Spanish painter based in France for a much of his life, was the first artist to decorate one of our bottles: the Chardonnay Barrica. In time, this work has become one of the symbols identifying Enate.
More than 100 original works of art by well-known painters are permanently on display in the Exhibition Hall at our winery, and the public launches of Enate wines are usually held at venues connected to art, such as the Thyssen Bornemisza Museum, the MACBA, the Tàpies Foundation in Barcelona and the IVAM in Valencia.
In this way, this private collection is becoming one of the most important contemporary art collections in Spain, unique because of its direct relationship between contemporary art and Enate wine. Names like Antoni Tapies, Eduardo Chillida, Rafael Canogar, Antonio Saura, José Manuel Broto, Víctor Mira, Pepe Cerdá, Salvador Victoria, José Beulas, Gustavo Torner, Frederic Amat, Eduardo Arroyo and many other painters form part of the group of artists who have worked with Enate.
