Potomac Point Winery is proud to announce the addition of David Pagan Castaño as head winemaker. David is a third generation winemaker from Yecla, Spain beginning with his grandfather who founded what is now Bodegas Castano, one of Southeast Spain’s premier wineries. After obtaining his Master’s degree in Oenology and Viticulture from Polytechnic University of Valencia, Spain with post-graduate Master classes at the prestigious Ecole Superieure d’Agriculture d’Angers & De Toulouse, France; David officially began his career in winemaking at his family’s winery, Bodegas Castaño. His experience with his family’s 1,000 acre vineyard and winery instilled a deep appreciation for quality fruit and family values. We are honored to be welcoming David and his family to our family owned winery.
David’s experience in Cotes-du-Rhone, France; Mallorca, Spain; Sonoma, California; Marlborough, New Zealand; and most recently Loudoun County, Virginia has helped to shape his wine making style and vineyard expertise. Throughout his career, David has worked with over 40 different grape varietals and over the past five years he has won more than a dozen gold and platinum international awards for his wines. We feel David’s unique experiences will bring a new and welcomed perspective to Potomac Point Winery’s team.
