Many changes have occurred in Manzanos in these six years since Víctor, the eldest of the Fernández de Manzanos brothers, disembarked in the winery after arriving from London, prepared to take the reins of the family business. His father, Víctor Fernández de Manzanos Pastor, author of the project for the current winery, had suddenly just died and this young man, at only twenty years of age, became the company’s engine, assuming the position of CEO.
At that time, the company lacked creditworthiness, asphyxiated by the credits for the new facilities and the distribution of product was confined to the local scope with the traditional brand, Viña Marichalar, to which a new mid-high range brand had just been added, Finca Manzanos, gave way to the start of the Bodegas Manzanos project.
The winery had four underground floors for wine elaboration and ageing and a common reception area on the ground floor. By then, there were 12 workers and a weak commercial network, neither national nor international. Nevertheless, today the company’s team is made up of more than 155 people.
