Wine has been in my family for generations and I’ve always loved everything about wine – working with the vineyards, harvest time, blending and most of all, sharing a glass of wine with family and friends.
My family has made wine across 4 continents and over 10 generations so I was fortunate to have grown up learning about all aspects of the wine business at a very young age. Being French and Chilean and born in the Napa Valley, I also experienced the global side of the wine world and had the chance to work grape harvests in Australia and California, make wines in Argentina and Napa and market some of the most collectible wines from Burgundy and Champagne to Piedmont and Tuscany.
I really enjoy working at Folio because of the family stewardship, focus on quality and authentic wines made by real families and the youthful and dynamic entrepreneurial culture.
I currently live in the East Bay with my wife and 2 kids. In my time off, I enjoy cycling, skiing, hiking and help coach my kids’ soccer teams.
