NAME OF VIGNERON: Martin A Alonso Etayo
Some interesting thoughts from Martín: “There is a saying that goes “I wanted to change the World, but nothing changed, I changed myself and everything changed”. I believe that really defines my organic philosophy”. His whole life he’d felt attracted to nature and country life. After too many years working with no fulfilment, at the age of 32 he managed to acquire some land where he started to cultivate a vineyard, olive trees, quince trees and other fruits trees, always being convinced that a healthy, loved and respected soil produces healthy fruits. When Martin started to grow the vineyard this way, his farmer neighbours mistrusted his methods, but after many years they have begun to believe that this is a good way and they are changing their methods for the better. The initial scepticism has transformed into unbridled enthusiasm.
