Marina

I’m daughter and granddaughter of winegrowers; wine and vineyards have flowed through our veins for many generations. I worked for eight years as the public relations officer in Bodegas Muga, in the well-known Railway station quarter of Haro. I have a degree in translation and interpretation and I speak English and German fluently. I am passionate about the world of wine, which is why I studied the professional training course, Specialised Wine Producer and Other Alcoholic Drinks. Although I don’t work as an oenologist, I enjoy watching and understanding the technique for making a good wine, apart from the importance of the grapevines. I love going out with my family to discover villages and places that are new to us and we enjoy wandering through the streets and surrounding areas. You don’t need to go very far to appreciate the beauty of things.
