For me, the Cono Sur experience…
It’s almost impossible to put into words what the experience at Cono Sur has meant for me. I’ve been working at this company for 12 years now. Cono Sur is almost like a second family to me, as it’s truly part of my life. It’s also the place where I can let myself go and create, being able to express and develop myself next to an extraordinary team. It’s been an extremely nice experience.

I’ve been working for Cono Sur since…
1997

My job consists in…

I’m Chief Winemaker and Managing Director.

Over this time, I’ve specially enjoyed…
Undoubtedly, Cono Sur’s team, which is one of the most motivating aspects of this company.

My all time Cono Sur favourite Cono Sur wine is…
It’s impossible for me to have a favourite Cono Sur wine. I’m especially fond of every single one.

Because…
Each one of Cono Sur’s wines is part of our agricultural and winemaking team’s creation. Each one is produced with effort and affection, and therefore has a particular feature that makes it special. If I had to choose one though, it would be our 20 Barrels Chardonnay, for a very sentimental reason, as the grapes come from a place along the coast where I spent most of my holidays as a child.

And would love to drink it…

In my house at the beach, just before lunch and after going for a bike ride, I open a bottle next to my family and friends. It’s definitely the time of the week which I enjoy the most.

A little about myself…
I’m married, I have 4 kids, I’m an agronomist from Universidad Católica. I love spending time with my family and playing sports.

When I’m not working, I enjoy…
Definitely spending time at the beach… I am very fond of coastal areas, where I can enjoy sports, my family and the sea.
