What we feel most proud of at Finca Collado is, without a doubt, our team. We are a very committed group, dedicated to the project and we all share some essential virtues: We like to work and, even more, enjoy doing it. And whenever possible, we do both at once. And even though each has our function, we will all do everthing at one time or another. We like it like that because it keeps us up to date with everything that happens in the winery and because it brings us new points of view which help us to progress..
Joan Guia is the soul of the project. Passionate about the vineyard and wine, and its close relationship with culture and history. He has a restless mind, always planning and devising new and original projects. In fact, he always seems between chaos and calm, but it is simply that his head does not stop churning with everything that he has to handle and we are surprised by his ability to make decisions in a matter of seconds. He is a tireless reader, very responsible in everything he does and enjoys seeing happiness in others.
Samuel Castelló has an out-of-the-box capability to have a good time and to make it a good time for others. His passion is spearfishing and everything to do with the sea, until it comes to the moment of enjoying a good meal in good company (with a good wine, of course). If we have such a good time working at Finca Collado, it is partly because of the positive energy that Samuel transmits.
Working in the world of wine for as long as she can remembers, Elena Estevan likes the action. Always in contact with people, discovering new relationships and meeting new challenges. But, above all what she likes best is laughing. Even at herself. Lover of gastronomy and wine culture and of travelling, technicalities and hyperbole are not for her. Frank, clear and direct, emotions are her guide.
Eva Pardines has been working on wine exports since 2006. Born in Paris, of Valencian parents, she returned to her origins attracted by the world of wine. She has a passion for music and is a lover of nature. Persevering, forward thinking, honest and committed to the needs of others, she is a tireless worker.
Vicent Payá is our strong man in the cellar. Always willing to help, he never takes no for an answer. Optimistic like no other, he knows how to work hard, but also create the conditions for a good working environment. He is also a botany lover and knows all the species that grow in Finca Collado.
Manuel Vidal was born in Finca Collado. He has worked at Finca Collado. He is Finca Collado. Helpful, practical, cheerful and a good companion. All the vineyards are in his charge. And he knows how to manage everything and, more importantly, pass it on to those who need to know.
