My name is Dr. Sofia Seccombe, and in this small section, I want to tell you who I am and why I started this project.
I don’t want to bore you, but I consider that it is an important part of Godlywine. It serves as an exercise in transparency so that the person who reads the articles can be sure that the information is reliable.
Therefore, you will know me from my beginnings until today. In addition, I will also tell you the moment in which Godlywine was born and, in the end, some professionals that I follow and that I recommend following.
Since I can remember, viticulture has been a part of my life, as it was also my ancestors. If I have to be sincere (and here I must be), I have to admit that it was not always a pleasure, especially in the beginning.
When I was 6 years old, I began to accompany my parents and uncles to inspect the rows of vineyards, attend to explanations of the wine-making process or study the best conservation treatments with the oenologists.
Everything to understand the basis of a joint effort that aims to achieve the best possible product and always concerning the land, the vine, and, finally, the wine.
But what a real treat afterward!
I became truly passionate about this world. I decided that the vine would be at the heart of my work and my life, and I have worked tirelessly to carry out this task with the same devotion those who preceded me in it did.
From the vineyard to the winery, we went through all the administrative tasks, personnel management, and the marketing of our wines for different markets worldwide.
I am what is said to be a privileged person because I work in what I am passionate about, and I can make a living from it. But, at the same time, I am also aware that it is not enough.
When you accumulate on your back the enormous responsibility of guaranteeing the continuity of a historic wine project, which my great-grandparents started with great effort, you must always be willing to give the best version of yourself.
Those who preceded me along the way knew how to instill in us, generation after generation, a love for a job well done around the vineyard.
Today I myself strive every day to transmit that passion to my children, and I am sure that, when they grow up, they will appreciate the legacy that will unite them forever with this extraordinary place.
When Godlywine was born
Today the times are different. It is no longer enough, or at least that is how I interpret it, to carry out this task in the home’s heat. In this globalized world in which it is so easy to obtain information from anywhere on the planet, it is up to us to tear down borders and air our ancestral knowledge.
That is why this website was born, with the sole purpose of transmitting the passion for wine to anyone interested in it.
With all this, I want to welcome you to a space where we can share knowledge, experience, and advice so that you can live wine with the same devotion as our family.
