“ElBulli restaurant is transforming into the
elBulliFoundation. Thanks to this sale, our work
on gastronomic creativity can continue” says Ferran Adrià.
Sotheby’s is delighted to announce the dates for the much
anticipated auction of the elBulli wine cellar. On 3
April 2013 in Hong Kong and 26 April 2013 in New York, Sotheby’s will offer wines from the cellar of the
celebrated Catalan restaurant that closed last year. Founded over 50 years ago in 1961, elBulli was led by
Ferran Adrià for the last 27 years.

Further details and an elBulli video on the Foundation can be found at

Ferran Adrià said: “The elBulliCellar comprises an ex
ceptional and unique collection of wines, that was
created and developed by Juli Soler and the elBulli
sommelier team (Agustí Peris, Eloi Sànchez, Isabelle
Brunet, Lucas Payà, David Seijas and Ferran Centelles)
. Due the transformation of elBulli, from a restaurant
to a Foundation, we decided this very special and per
sonal collection should be used to make a founding
contribution to help ensure the successful launch of the
elBulliFoundation. In order to make this possible, we
contacted Sotheby’s, who have already shown themselves
to be a very special and enthusiastic partner,
immediately understanding the purpose of the elBulli
Foundation. Thanks to Sotheby’s, we now have a
wonderful objective: to raise funds for the elBulliFound
ation. Both personally, and on behalf of all the
elBulliFoundation team, I would like
to thank collectors all over the world for their contributions. Also, my
special thanks to Juli Soler – this story would never have
been possible without his work and dedication during
all these years.”

Serena Sutcliffe M.W., Head of International Wine Department at Sotheby’s said: “Those of us lucky enough
to have dined at elBulli will never forget the extraordinary sensations laid before us. There was both an
explosive genius about the food and a calm, professional
way in which it was delivered, so that one could
discover with awe all the secrets of smoke, foam and spheres of liquid involving melon to olives. There was
surprise, delight and elation in every dish, a seamless procession of magic that opened up before one’s eyes,
only to disappear in a moment of bliss! The extra ingredient in these meals was the intuitive pairing of these
creations with the enticing, and phenomenally interesting, wine list. We are delighted to be able to bring these
wines to auction so collectors all over the world can share the enchantment of elBulli.”

Under the leadership of Ferran Adrià and Juli Soler, the cutting
edge gastronomy of elBulli is recognized as having changed
culinary history by reworking ingredients into new forms and
combinations. It was feted with
awards including topping the
Restaurant Magazine list of the world’s 50 best restaurants five
times, with Adrià frequently named the world’s greatest chef.
Since closing in July 2011 elBulli is transforming to become the
elBulliFoundation, an experimental centre looking at the process
of innovation and creativity and sharing the results via the new
website Bullipedia.

Juli Soler has been Director of elBulli since 1981,
and was responsible for hiring Ferran Adrià with whom he
has been a long-time partner at elBulli. In reference to the
elBulli Cellar, Juli has always had a special love for
classical wine regions, such as Burgundy, Bordeaux, Sherry, Rioja, Cava and Champagne among others, and
his areas of expertise are very well reflected in this person
al collection.He has been a keen participant at the
annual Hospices de Beaune auction and has also received
prestigious national and international awards, such
as: Chevalier de Champagne, “Gueridón de Oro 2011” and “National Gastronomy Award to the best Service

Juli is one of the most knowledgeable figures in the world of gastronomy and a universal reference among
dining room staff and sommeliers. He has been and is an
inspiration for all those associated with the world of
cooking. Juli announced in October that he will retire from his executive management position at the
elBulliFoundation. However, the elBulliFoundation team are more committed than ever to preserving Juli’s
legacy and work in gastronomic history
through the elBulliFoundation project.

Ferran Adrià is widely seen as the most revolutionary
chef of our time and the most original mind in
contemporary gastronomic history. However, he is recognized beyond the world of gastronomy:
Ferran Adrià was named as one of the “100 world ́s most influential people” by Time Magazine.
