Advertising postcard from the end of the 19th century from ENOSÓTERO. A product to preserve and improve all kinds of wines. This easy-to-use and inexpensive one was intended for winemakers and wine merchants who wanted to prevent wine from turning into vinegar.
 
As the back of the postcard indicates “At a dose of about 45 grams per hectoliter (ounce and a half per load) it preserves and improves all kinds of wines. Both the natural ones and those that have been added with sugar or molasses. It is essential to prevent low-grade wines and so-called “agua-pié” from turning into vinegar or rotting. Wine with Enosótero can travel by sea and undergo temperature changes without altering "
 
This product was exclusively distributed by the company "Alomar y Uriach" with its main headquarters at 20 Montcada street in Barcelona.
