Ignacio Recabarren holds a degree in agricultural engineering from the Catholic University of Chile and joined Concha y Toro in 1995, after a successful career both in Chile and abroad.
He participated in crushes at Tyland Vineyards in Mendocino County, California, as well as at Château Maucaillou, Château Margaux, and Château Lafitte in France. He also lived in New Zealand for two and a half years, during which time he worked for Morton Estate, Matua, and Cloudy Bay wineries, among others.
Ignacio Recabarren has clearly earned his place as a major reference in the Chilean wine industry. His spot-on perspective and pioneering vision have served him well over the years and have led him to such successes as discovering Casablanca Valley’s privileged conditions for growing white grapes and leading Amelia to becoming Chile’s first ultra-premium Chardonnay. He has also played a major role in positioning Carmenere as the country’s signature variety and in achieving its international prestige through Terrunyo Carmenere and Carmín de Peumo, Concha y Toro’s icon Carmenere.
Currently oversees four wine ranges: Trio, Terrunyo, Amelia and Carmín de Peumo, the winery’s icon Carmenere.
