Quinta de la Rosa
The Bergqvist family has been involved in the wine business since 1815 both in winemaking and shipping. In the 1930’s they sold their shipping company, Feueheerd, but retained Quinta de La Rosa which was managed by Claire Feueheerd. In 1988, Clair’s granddaughter Sophia and her father Tim decided to relaunch Quinta de La Rosa.
