Eulogio Gondar Galiñanes created Lagar de Candes in 2003, at the age of 36. He tells that he had always liked the world of viticulture and that, after a few years, after marrying, he started planting and was encouraged by the project. Thus, he says, laughing, that his wife wanted to build a house on the farm where Lagar de Candes vineyard is now located, in A Barrosa, Portonovo, but that little by little he began planting a vineyard and then another and so on He "chafed the plan" to his wife.
