Winemaker Manuel Castro sought to drive the path of reconnecting with the winemaking traditions of the region. In a time when the convention for seeking a professional career was to become an engineer or architect, Castro dreamt for a more simple life: having less and getting more out of the simple pleasures of life. In his venture to become a winemaker he graduated in Agricultural Engineering and went on to get a masters in Viticulture, Oenology and Marketing.
Not everything is black and white. Take a badger for example. That's mostly grey. But poor old zebras. Well. Yes. They pretty much are black and white. Which is fine. But what if you're a zebra with ambition? With the will to be different. What do you do about that?
One zebra tried his best to break the pattern. He feasted on colourful flowers; nibbled bright stones; drank from crystal pools. But nothing worked. Until one night, asleep in a state of despair, the zebra dreamt he drank a glass of ruby wine. Cherries fell from the sky, and the subtle scent of incense filled the air. And when the zebra woke, to its surprise, it found the colour of its stripes had changed. All it takes is a little imagination, and this wine will transform you too.
