Growing up in the capital of Chile, Santiago, Juan loved spending time in the countryside. After a few years working as a psychologist in Santiago, he decided to go to Australia. This is where winemaking joins his path and he worked in different wineries across Australia and New Zealand for several years. In 2018 he came to the UK to join Emma Rice and the team at Hattingley Valley, becoming Assistant Winemaker in 2020. He has a huge passion for winemaking.
