Martin Berasategui is sponsoring the Nilva winery in the hope of encouraging local farmers in this traditional wine-growing region to preserve their vines.

Representatives of the Centro de Interpretación Las Viñas (CIVIMA) and Nilva Enoturismo approached Berasategui, winner of seven Michelin stars, after starting the campaign to protect the vineyards.

According to Nilva Enoturismo director Argimiro Martinez, more than 70% of Manilva’s original vineyards have been destroyed for development.
