Enrique is an Agricultural Engineer at the Universidad Católica de Chile and he completed the prestigious postgraduate studies “Diplôme Universitaire d’Aptitude à la Dégustation des vins” at the University of Bordeaux.
He has had a illustrious career at Viña Concha y Toro. After joining the company in 1993 to lead its premium brands, in 1997 he was appointed head winemaker to assume responsibility for its super premium and ultra premium labels in addition to the company’s icon wine, Don Melchor.
His exacting, ongoing research into terroir management as well as his extraordinary sensitivity in winemaking allowed him to be designated as the exclusive winemaker of Don Melchor in 1999.
In 2010 Concha y Toro released its first icon Syrah. The new Gravas del Maipo 2007 confirms Enrique’s absolute dedication for making wines from terroirs in the Maipo Basin at the foot of Andes Mountains.
“For me, Don Melchor is an ongoing quest to get the truest possible expression from every plant in the vineyard to attain beauty in the equilibrium from each Puente Alto terroir harvest. It’s my true obsession.”
