    Artist | Was in a band from high school and was working for the Sound Dept of Sony until the pastoral lifestyle of Paso beckoned..
    Local | Grew up in Paso but never thought he would be a winemaker! In his words he returned home from LA in order to get his hands dirty!
    Sustainable | As well as adhering to dry and organic farming, he self propagated every single one of his vines with cuttings from vineyards he knew inside out and had long admired.

    Guillaume Fabre
    Romantic | He knew that he would marry his wife Solene from first sight when seeing her singing at church! And how many winemakers name their winery after their love story?
    Hybrid | French winemaker making Old World style wine in Paso vineyards.
    Pioneer | He gave up six generations of family winemaking in France to go and make wine on the other side of the world and in not a very well known wine region at the time.

    Goran Bjekovic
    Athlete | Athletes are known for their drive, strength and focus. Having a family of athletes behind a winery can only result in meticulous execution and a world class slam dunk wine.
    Family | A family is what created this winery and that same family managed and oversaw the wine production. Goran, wife Ksenija and three children, Sasha, Aljosa and Nina, created Aleksander wines as a family estate, for now and for the future generations to come.
    Risk | How many families do you know who have quit their livelihood and travelled the world in order to support each others athletic and vinous dreams?

    Jeremy Weintraub
    East Coast | A home grown New Yorker who donned his corporate tie for a cowboy hat in Paso.
    Intellectual | Not many people after a successful stint in politics would go back to college at 30 to retrain in Chemistry. In order to further his appreciation of winemaking Jeremy then worked in vineyards all around the world from New Zealand to Italy.
    Renaissance | From being in a band, fixing vintage motor bikes, working in political think tanks, cooking up a storm in the kitchen and being a multitasking Paso winemaker for Adelaida and Site - is there any more skills this guy needs to add to his bow?!

    Nomad | Vailia has travelled and lived all over the States, Canada and Central America. What drew her to Paso was its Wild West frontier and ‘no rules’ allure.
    Feminist | From her striking wine labels which incorporate the female form - to her women only run winery - Vailia is a firm believer in empowering and supporting fellow ambitious and brave women in the industry.
    Experimenter | Not many winemakers work with 17 different grape varietals and with a variety of different vessels from oak to clay amphorae.

    Anthony Yount
    FARMER | From his farm boy roots in Missouri, he now lives the farm lifestyle; working with grapes and living off the animals he owns and produce he grows.
    PRODIGY | At only 24 years old he was the winemaker of a multimillion dollar business and 6 years later he was defined by Wine Spectator as the epicentre of the West Paso wine scene.
    TENACIOUS | Not only did he survive a life threatening accident; he viewed it as an opportunity to pursue the vinous Paso path..
