José Antonio Elosegi starts his business. With courage and a desire to fill the needs of the time, he and his wife, Navarre, brought a wineskin from the border to the Gabiria Spa restaurant where they worked, which was enjoyed by the patrons. Soon after he got himself a mule and the story begins.
José Antonio and his wife move to Ormai- ztegui, a town in the Basque Country of Nor- thern Spain, and open an inn, focusing on the sale of wine.
With a train carriage purchased in Bilbao, and the capacity to hold large quantities of wine, José Antonio’s objec- tive was to go to La Mancha. There, he met with great wine produ- cers to negotiate and bring good wine to the north for its subsequent distribution and sale.
During the Spanish civil war the Elosegis’s move to Beasain, where José Antonio builds a four-storey house, set- ting up the wine-selling business on the lower floors.
After the death of their father, the Elosegi sons continue to run the business. With a small fleet of distribution trucks and vans.
With the founder’s grandchildren, José Ma- nuel and his cousin José Mari in charge of the business, Vinos Elosegi S.L. is established.
The 3rd generation of Elosegis’s move to a building in Olaberria, where the business is still run today.
The fourth generation of Elosegis, Mikel Elo- segi and his cousin José Manuel Elosegi, take over the business from their parents. Main- taining the company’s core values and traditio- nal methods, but with a more professional and specialised approach, and now exporting worldwide.
