Agustí Peris and Manel Pla are, in addition to two of the most recognized and deans sommeliers of our country, two great wine thinkers, interpreters of the word and the senses. In this paper we propose from their personal and professional vision, review the meaning and depth of the words used in the wine language, a parallel world linked to images and feelings where the philosophy of each mind creates its own reflection. Natural Wines, Terroir, Minerality, Salinity, Sulfites or Umami are some of the terms that will be put into analysis, valuing their current trend, visions and interpretations. It is undoubtedly a unique opportunity to assess from the reasoned, agile and cognitive exposition of Agustí and Manel, our communication, perception and hedonistic enjoyment of wine.
