"I was born in the heart of Valencia City, surrounded by buildings, a lot of cars and asphalt. No vineyards were around me. Because of this and also because I like wine I decided to go outside the city and to discover Spanish Vineyards. The rest is history!
After a period of training in Valencia and California I went back home and I began my work in La Viña, first as a manager for Quality and currently as a Technical Manager. La Vina is located in the charming village of Fuente La Higuera, literally “Fountain of The Fig Tree", some 100 km south of Valencia City on Spain’s Mediterranean coast.
Although I am the head winemaker in a huge winery, my personal passion is going into a pet project...to show that Valencia can make wines to compete with the best of Rioja.
What do I love about being a winemaker? Well, I get to drink lots of wine for free! And I get to work with something that makes life more enjoyable."
