Bodegas Fundador has had the pleasure of presenting the XIth Outdoor Painting Competition, to take place on October 16th at the winery. The competition is being organized by Bodegas Fundador and the City’s Historic Centre’s Neighbourhood Association.
The presentation of the competition took place on Monday September 26th 2016 at Bodega Fundador’s facilities, and was presented by the Managing Director of Bodegas Fundador, Rafael Rendón, together with the Mayor of Jerez, Maria del Carmen Sánchez Díaz, the Deputy Mayor, Francisco Camas, the President of the Historic City Centre’s Neighbourhood Association, Alejandro González, the head of the neighbourhood’s local Church’s Brotherhood, Francisco Zurita, the President of the Flamenco enthusiasts ‘La Buena Gente’, Nicolás Sosa.
