We are Alejandro and Juan Andrés, we grew up in the winery, and we both feel the same passion for wine and vineyards since kids, reason of why we both studied oenology.
I am Alejandro, oenologist, graduated from the School of Oenology Presidente Tomás Berretta in Uruguay, besides winemaking, I have specialized in viticulture and I am in charge of the vineyards in the winery. I worked a harvest in Napa Valley, USA, working for the wineries V. Sattui and Castello di Amorosa, where I learned a lot and made great memories. I am part of the directive board of the Uruguayan Oenology Association, where we work to improve oenology in our country. I live very close to the winery; I like wine, friends, family and also playing tennis every once in a while. From my place, I try to steadily improve the quality of the winery and with my family make better wines every year.
I am Juan Andrés, also oenologist, studied in Mendoza, Argentina, where I graduated as Licenciado en Enología e Industria Frutihortícola in J. A. Maza University. There, I worked in La Rural winery, and did internships in several wineries, including Navarro Correas. When I returned to Uruguay we decided with my brother, that our role in this story was to take further the work of the previous generations. Nowadays, the challenge in Uruguay is to develop foreign trade, which is why we have focused on quality and positioning our wines in the international market. I am the winemaker along with the oenologist Sebastian Strada, who has been part of our team for more than 15 years, and with Alejandro in the management of the vineyards. I take part in international fairs, learning from each of the markets where we are present.
