Manuel Pires

“Vintner Manuel Pires was Founder and President of Morse Watchmans, a global technology leader in guard tour and key management systems. Founded over a century ago, the company emerged as the industry’s most recognizable name in security management products through innovations and advances in key security technology. Manuel spent his childhood summers working the land of his grandfather’s quinta (farm) in Portugal. Ever since, with farming in his blood, he’s had a dream of returning to work the land, and in particular, to grow grapes and make wine. His dream came true when he and his wife Cristina established Gandona Estate in Napa Valley in 2006. They named the estate Gandona (humble man) in honor of Manuel’s grandfather, whose kindness and compassion earned him this beloved nickname.”
