A wine pro, a creative leader, a visioner, you name it, all of this fits in what Mitko do. We call it THE HEART as we absolutely love to dig into his head into the endless imaginative side: wines, stories, tastings, wineries, winemakers, pretty much giving form to his vision. Fantasy conceptions run through his veins constantly fueling the wine lust. His ex-corporate buying background keeps his flying ideas organised, making him very flexible to jump from one task to another. Painfully charming by nature with a fearless sense for self-expression and self-irony. As to his personality, the biggest inner strength is his predominantly endless positivity and happy attitude in life.
A firm believer in quality, no matter if we talk about wines or relationship. Enormous nature and sports lover.

Doni is the vital link between commerce, customers and deadlines. Throw her deeply into web site development, sales, social interactions, gosh she loves all that social, creative and administrative work along with a cup of strong espresso. An absolute deliverer - what gets on her desk will get done no matter what. Creative, polite and not only but a lot more analytical, always with an eagle-eye approach to details and firm principles when setting wine activities, talking with customers privately, budgets.
That’s why she is THE MIND. Great to plan, great to set deadlines, also good with sudden surprises as there is always time for something else on her calendar. Another endless nature lover that dreams constantly of travelling the world. Her other strong side: persevering, energetic, talks less, works more! She is really strong literally and creative soul.
