PUBLISHER SPECIALISING IN THE
Editorial Cultura Líquida is a publisher specialising in the dissemination of wine as culture. An independent publishing house created in 2020 with the desire to recover, create and carry on the legacy of words by spreading the culture of wine.
Our aim is to publish books that reflect the Liquid Culture we disseminate. Books that tell stories about wine and the land, wine heritage, viticulture, the art of the sommelier or gastronomy. In addition to our own publications, we take on the challenge of recovering editions of out-of-print books, reprints and books not translated into Spanish of high cultural value and social interest and with a variety of themes.
We see books as an area for reflection to promote debate, education and social- cultural entrepreneurship.
The name of our publishing house is a declaration of principles. Wine is linked to the history of mankind, to the land, the history, the landscape and the people. We want to build a legacy founded on cultural entrepreneurship for social transformation.
With Editorial Cultura Líquida we aspire to connect geographies, culture, wine and people through books. Generating a network of exchange, meetings, learning and knowledge to promote the dissemination of the culture of wine at a number of levels.
We believe in the intangible value of wine, in the universality of its heritage and in wine as a culture in its own right.
In December 2021 we presented our first book “Viñedos y vinos del Noroeste de España”, by the great French geographer and historian Alain Huetz de Lemps. It is the first fully integrated translation into Spanish of the thesis published in Bordeaux in 1967 and it is a benchmark for researchers and professionals in the world of wine.
Through Editorial Cultura Líquida we promote the dissemination and promotion of works, research and publications of cultural interest that promote memory, reflection and social change.
Editorial Cultura Líquida s a publishing project that is part of the Fundación Cultura Líquida, a non-profit-making organisation, was created to contribute to development and social improvement through the culture of wine. Both the foundation and the publishing house are committed to ethics, sustainable social development and transparency.
All sales of the books contribute to the fulfilment of the founding objectives of
disseminating and promoting the culture of wine, of protecting and defending its historical legacy and cultural heritage.

MANUAL DE PODA DE LA VID. CORDÓN PERMANENTE
After publication in a number of languages, we are presenting, for the first time in Spanish, this practical manual on a world-pioneering and innovative pruning method. The author is Marco Simonit, and he details the Simonit & Sirch Method for pruning as a result of decades of experience, observation, work and study of vineyards throughout the world. The aim is to increase the useful life the grapevine and its well-being through the defence of values such as diversity and sustainability.
Marco Simonit and Pierpaolo Sirch have recovered ancestral traditions, showing sensitivity to the conditions of each plant, updating them and codifying them in simple but essential operational rules. The manual addresses all the aspects that enable the pruner to achieve maximum balance in the grapevine, to protect the wealth of indigenous varieties and to consolidate our knowledge with regard to the technique of pruning. The book describes how to apply the method throughout the different seasons and according to the age of the vine: From the formation of the rootstock to the development of branching in fifteen-year-old vines, the formation of the shoot, to operations involving the conversion and reconstruction of the adult plant. Simonit & Sirch are renowned as Vine Master Pruners and their advice is sought by the most important wine cellars in the world.

Gérard Basset was one of the most influential and respected wine stewards the world has ever seen The Taste of Success is his memoires, published after his death from an illness in 2019 at the age of 61. The book is an inspirational story of his life in the world of wine.
The Taste of Success, which has the sub-title The Life and Wines of the World’S Favourite Wine Steward, tells the story of Basset’s astronomical career in the first person. He provides us with details of how he made a number of unprecedented achievements. He was one of the first to be awarded the difficult title of Master of Wine whilst simultaneously being named Master Sommelier and Wine MBA. But this book is all about his unremitting search for the most important title in the world and how Gérard Basset managed to be crowned as the “Best Wine Steward in the World.
His professional career is an extraordinary example of triumph under the most adverse and complex circumstances. It tells about us about his difficulties at school and his lack of a formal education.
In spite of everything, Basset never attributed his success to natural talent, but to determination and commitment.
