The life of the Marques of Vitoria presents a sequence of historical landmarks. He migrated to south America in the late 19th century. Arriving in Chile he embarked upon a variety of business ventures. He found in vines a symbolic encounter between the beauty of the land and man's legitimate ambitions. His wines achieved great renown.
Before returing to Vitoria to live out his last days in the homeland, he joined a group of adventurers from Alava in the pursuit of the Calcedonia fiabilis, a beautifu, little-known blue butterfly. Today, the Marquis of Vitoria remains in the strata of memories where great anonymous heroes and great men rest.
