What does Verde Marte mean?By Mark on mayo 30, 2012 — Leave a comment
The worst part of living in Spain is bureaucracy, the country is full of civil servants who start from ‘the answer is no, now what is your question?’ So when I was starting the company my lawyers said they had a client with a dormant company and all we had to do was go the notary sign some paper, exchange documents and for €100 it was done. The alternative was shedloads of paper work and expense. In a previous life Verde Marte was a clothing design company owned by a very pretty, hippy. It didn’t work out so she parked it.
On the day we exchanged she said ‘what are you going to do with the name?’, I asked her what why she chose ‘Green Mars‘ as a name, she shrugged and said maybe there is life out there and asked me not to change it. So I didn’t. The good thing about the name is that people don’t forget it.
About Mark O´Neill
I started Verde Marte (Green Mars) working with producers in different regions and designers to produce wines that reflected modern Spain and were easily identifiable by consumers. Several good ideas and awarding winning ideas like ‘ñ - the essence of Spain’.
Today the business is doing well but still to make the big break through. As they say it is very hard to know when the timing is right. So I will continue onwards and upwards as there is so much to do.
