Family feud shakes up Vega Sicilia winery

A FAMILY feud between Vega Sicilia boss Pablo Alvarez and his siblings against his father David, 87, overshadows the 150-year celebration.

The row has seen a raft of lawyers drafted in on all sides.

The battle began when an alleged takeover coup was launched by five siblings during their father David Alvarez’s honeymoon with his third wife in 2009.

Apparently, the children have been unsettled by David’s wife, 61, who was not only his secretary but also younger than his oldest child.

It came to a head recently when Alvarez Senior organized a celebration for the same day as the Vega Sicilia 150th anniversary party at his Madrid residence.

At the lavish bash he also invited many of the same people as his children, attempting to take a shine off the event.
