Who we are
We're the Vallès Beneit family,
Santi is an agricultural engineer and has been a winegrower from a very young age. You will see him on a tractor or out and about on the vineyard. He is involved in several farmers organizations. When he’s not taking care of the vineyard or the olive trees he loves a good meal, jazz, and playing with Furla.
Adelina is pure energy. Not only she is a great cook, but she has an amazing eye for interior design. She likes to use old materials such as tiles and vineyard tools to make furniture. She used to work in Risk Management and Public Health at a famous winery, Codorníu, for over 30 years until she retired in 2017.
Maria is Santi and Adelina’s eldest daughter. She spent seven years abroad studying and working in China, the United States, Colombia, South Korea and India. She holds a Masters in International Relations from Columbia University, and she rejoined the family business in 2018. She loves travel, film and design.
Anna is the youngest member of the household and a major bookworm. A humanist by training, she works in the publishing industry in Barcelona, loves theater and hiking, and is heavily involved with grassroots activism and the Scouts movement. She speaks fluent English and Italian, which she picked up studying abroad in Bologna. She loves wine as much as the rest of her family.
Furla is a German shepherd who has been with us since 2013. She will bark at strangers and present her belly to be rubbed by anyone else. She is great at catching flies and wild animals, as well as keeping track of the whereabouts of her family members.
