In the early eighties little Josep Barceló, still too young to read, would identify the peg to hang his coat on at his Priorat school by a drawing of a mushroom (“rovelló”) over it. In his childish speech, he would not pronounce the “r” sound properly, so his schoolmates promptly nicknamed him “govelló”, later shortened to Gobe.
Amics del Gobe (Gobe's friends) was on its way.
Any of you interested in further details can join the Gobe group in Facebook or have a look at the video in Vintaix (see links below).
Perhaps from somewhere Gobe still looks after his vineyard…
