In 1990, his enthusiasm and his love for high quality wine, urge him to create a small traditional wine factory, in his vineyards, where he bottles his first wines. The local microclimate in combination with the excellent variety of the vineyards composition, which in some cases are situated by the sea, constitute the fountation of quality wine production.
