Anthony's vision for Finca Vegas is to represent the true character of the grapes he is using.
Giving importance to the vineyard as the first step in winemaking is essential to produce quality wines.

After an education that included the Canary Islands, Barcelona and Bordeaux, Anthony Weytjens settled at Finca Vegas in Las Vegas, Tenerife. At the young age of 3, Anthony's family moved to the Canary Islands, but it wasn't until his parents bought a wine estate in the early 2000s that Anthony was able to experience what it means to make wine.

"That moment changed my life. I spent a lot of time with our winemaker and I knew that I had found my passion."

Changing the course of his life, he decided to leave his studies in Barcelona and start a course of Higher Technician in Viticulture and Oenology in Montagne-Saint-Emilion (Bordeaux). After obtaining his degree, he studied at the Bordeaux University of Sciences, graduating in Biology in 2009. In 2011 Anthony completed his professional studies and obtained his Master in Viticulture and Oenology at the University of Oenology in Bordeaux. Thanks to this new and extensive knowledge, he was able to get some highly coveted internships at some of the best Chateaux in France. He was even offered the opportunity to work in Napa Valley and thus began his career in California, United States. The climate in Napa is very similar to that of the Canary Islands, and the uniqueness of California winemaking methods sparked his desire to learn more. Working on various aspects of winemaking, vineyard management, and wine brand development, he gained a thorough understanding of the wine industry from grape to bottle.
