I sometimes wonder whether the milk in our feeding bottles didn’t have a few drops of wine in it. Like my sister, I have inherited a love of good wine and the philosophy of taking the utmost care with every detail to ensure that Ochoa wines are of the highest quality.
It is my job to make our winery and its wines known to the entire world and to promote sales.
I never thought I would end up working in the winery. Until 2009, all I wanted to do was learn, see the world, and, unconsciously, I guess, acquire all the knowledge I needed help me make our winery that little bit better.
I had been working in England for several years, when one day I felt I was ready to put everything I had learned into the fifth member of our family: the wine.
I spend my life travelling from place to place: Madrid, Barcelona, New York, Berlin, Shanghai… but always in the good company of our wines and wearing a big smile. It makes me very happy to know that I am working for something my family has created, and when I go abroad and see people’s fascination with what we do, my smile grows even wider.
Ochoa Calendas is like me in a way. It is our winery’s youngest wine and the freshest and most lively. It like its ability to fit in anywhere, its new design, the history it encloses and the fact that it reflects the magic of every moon.
This wine gives us great satisfaction and I can honestly say I love it; for its flavour, its balance; for its popularity; for the affection it inspires both here in the winery and among our customers.
Adriana and I are sisters and we are used to borrow things from each other, so I take this wine from Adriana’s series to be one of my favourites. I like it because of the perfect blend of grape varieties and for the fruit aromas and its great complexion. And of course for the family history. When Adriana came back from Australia to work in the family business and after some years she created this wine inspired in what she lived there. I am proud of seeing that what we do in life is working very well.
