Roberto Henriquez Bío Bío/Itata, Chile

About Roberto Henriquez

Roberto Henríquez studied agronomy and enology at the University of Concepción. From there, he travelled and worked with winemakers in Canada, South Africa and finally in the Loire Valley with Rene Mosse. Rene had a profound effect on Roberto’s perspective on winemaking and his progression into organic and biodynamic farming.

Using his knowledge coupled with international experience, Roberto returned to his homeland Chile, residing along the southern frontier which is considered the origin of Chilean wine. Since May 2015, Roberto has been pursuing his dream and embarking on a career as an independent winemaker. The key to his success has been in producing wine made from 200-year-grapes located at the southern end of the Bio Bio riverbank.

País vines are an integral part of history, culture, tradition and character of Chilean terroir.
