Passion for the vineyard
Winery “Los Astrales” commenced operations at the end of the year 2000 trough the Romera de la Cruz Family´s initiative. They are the third generation of wine growers in Anguix, and have inherited a solid wine knowledge from their parents and, possessing an uncompromising philosophy of quality they decided to give upsuppluing grapes to other wineries and have decided to become wine producers.
Eduardo García joined the Company in 2001 as Technical Director, giving a boost to the project with the production of the first Astrales 2001. Eduardo García, once he had completed his training period in France and the United States, combined his work as head of viticulture for family wineries (Mauro, San Román Bodegas y Viñedos, Leda) with the Technical Management of “Los Astrales” until 2013.
The last milestone is the incorporation of José Hidalgo Togores as Technical Director in 2013. José Hidalgo, in addition to one of the most recognized winemakers in Spain, is the author of the “Viticulture and Oenology Treaty”, the text used in most Oenology Schools of Spain and Latin America.
