With seven strapping boys between 25 and five years old, ours is a family effort. Everyone helps out around the house and farm; during the harvest, bottling and labeling, when work intensifies, even the little ones are eager to contribute. As a small boutique winery, Quinta de Sant’Ana offers the chance to learn all aspects of winemaking – it is hard and rewarding work, a concentrated few weeks and an excellent and character-building experience. The eldest, Lucas and Franziscus have already done a few harvests each. This vintage will be made by Charlie.

We hope all our sons learn good work ethic, a love and respect for the land and who knows, they might steer our project into the future!
