Eduardo Barreiros and the Recovery of Spain

This chapter discusses Eduardo's interests in agricultural properties and other initiatives apart from his agricultural property. First, there was an initiative directly connected with Puerto Vallehermoso, a bodega in Valdepeñas. In 1973, Eduardo bought a majority holding in Luis Megía, a fine bodega of that city responsible for a beautiful wine. He determined to improve it, arranged to hold his wine in oak barrels, contracted a wine specialist from Chile, established a laboratory, and, in a year or two, began to produce a wine with more body, more bouquet, and more color than the old one. This new Luis Megía wine was often served in good restaurants in Madrid, even though a wine from Valdepeñas had the name of being cheap, light, and popular.
