Pamela obtained her bachelor’s degree in Agricultural Engineering with a master’s degree in Viticulture and Oenology at the University of Chile. Working for Viña La Playa for 10 years, she’s excited to now be chief winemaker for all brands.

“Continuing our sustainable and vegan winemaking techniques, I strive to produce varietally true, low-intervention wines that are approachable and representative of each of our family-owned estates.” If viticulture and winemaking wasn’t enough, you’ll find Pamela spending her spare time tending to her garden with her family.
