I am in charge of making and selling wine.
I started off by making wine in my apartment’s
bathtub, and changed my life from being an
engineer to being a wine-maker.
My life is split between vines and aircraft,
and I am always running about. I am a dreamer,
I am impatient, and I am studious. I love
opening great bottles with friends.
I am responsible for growing grapes
and making wine.I have been running around
the winery since I was a child; as a result,
all my life has been given over to vines.
My father devoted his life to planting and
caring for vines, and I have followed
the same path. I love playing sports,
playing with Jaime, and telling Fernando
to slow down.
Garnacha is my passion
“To make a great wine, you must drink great wines; is there anything better than doing it together?”
The best is always yet to come
