Bodegas Capità Vidal was set up by Captain Enrique Vidal in 1985. He was an experienced and celebrated sailor with many hours of solitary sailing under his belt. After several round-the-world trips, he decided to follow his dream. Together with his wife, Tati Fuchs, they created Bodegas Capità Vidal. She too was a sailor and Spanish champion of sailing skate, having clocked up many miles at the sea.

Together they built up a family-based winery producing small quantities of still wines and sparkling wines (Cavas). The quality of these products was well received by experts from different countries.
