Fintech & Wine: Making sense of Smart Contracts

Making sense of Smart Contracts


On Tuesday 13th we will be answering your questions about smart contracts and its applications in the real world. Alex Puig will share his experience as CEO of Digital Currency Summit and developer of distributed applications for financial institutions.



Smart contracts are computer protocols that facilitate, verify, or enforce the negotiation or performance of a contract, or that make a contractual clause unnecessary. Smart contracts usually also have a user interface and often emulate the logic of contractual clauses. Proponents of smart contracts claim that many kinds of contractual clauses may thus be made partially or fully self-executing, self-enforcing, or both. Smart contracts aim to provide security superior to traditional contract law and to reduce other transaction costs associated with contracting.

Smart Contracts are a central component to next-generation blockchain platforms.

Join us on Tuesday 13 at el Petit Celler where we will talk with Alex Puig about practical applications of Smart Contracts

Fintech & Wine events are informal events where our special guest will expose the topic through a thirty minutes talk, then all the assistants can join us in a Q&A session to debate around fintech in general. To close the evening, all the assistants could enjoy a nice networking drinking a glass of wine.The event will be very reduced, we will invite 13 influential people one by one. The other 13 will be part of our Fintech Barcelona Community. We believe in smaller but more qualitative events to make it easier to talk to everyone and meet really interesting people.

The Solergibert family, since they settled in Artés in 1730, have been working in the growing of the vineyards. In 1868 the family started building the wine-cellar in the middle of the village. In 1910, the cellar was enlarged; since then, Enric and his father Josep made different modifications. Until the 1960s, it was a great time for the vineyards around the village of Artés; there were vineyards everywhere. However, with the arrival of the industry many peasants abandoned the vineyards for a fixed monthly salary. Enric did not. He kept and even increased his vineyards; in 1973, he renovated the wine cellar extensively again.
After some years, the small wine revolution in Catalonia arrived in the area of Pla de Bages. That was in the 1980s and 1990s; it was a period for renewal. From that moment Enric could count on his son Josep, who was studying agriculture, and they started working together in the changing wine world.


This wine is only elaborated when the crop quality in the sunny vineyard of Matacans has been considered to be excellent. It is a blend of 85% cabernet sauvignon and 15% cabernet franc. First, we allow the grapes to overripe in the vineyard; then, we macerate them intensively for 23-25 days in our cellar. After that, the wine reposes 24 months in American oak barrels and, once it is in the bottle, it is going to improve there for a minimum of 6 to 10 years. It is a wine of a very limited produce and it is considered to be in the category of the best Spanish wines.
