The Brains Behind It

Vasco Croft

Vasco Croft is a jack of all trades. He started as an astrologer, moved onto architecture, dived into philosophy, dabbled in sculpture and woodworking, then met a Buddhist monk who shared a bottle of wine with him and changed his life. Vasco describes the encounter as a personal meeting with Dionysus. It led him to restore a semi-abandoned farmhouse, which had belonged to his family since the 17th century, and transform it into the Aphros project. Is Vasco a Faun in disguise? Well, there are rumours! More verifiably, his biodynamic and Dionysian approach to winemaking has met with astounding success, and his wines would be the pride of any Bacchanalia.
