Caliterra - The People

Rodrigo Zamorano, Chief Winemaker, has been working within Viña Errazuriz since 2007 where he held the position of assistant winemaker for three seasons, before moving to Errazuriz's El Descanso facility in 2009 where he was Chief Winemaker in charge of the company's white wines. Rodrigo was born in Viña del Mar in 1979. He has strong ties to France, having lived there for 6 years as a child, and, after returning to Chile, attending the French International School in Santiago. In 2005 he graduated from the University of Chile with a degree in Agricultural Engineering, specialising in Oenology. In January the same year he began his Master's in Montpellier in France with a brief stint at the University of Bordeaux. At the same time he earned the title of Oenologist from the OIV (Diplome National d'Oenologie). It was on his return to Chile in early 2007 that he began working for Errazuriz. Zamorano is passionate about using his knowledge and experience in order to make wines under the sustainable philosophy. On this point, Zamorano says, "From my point of view, sustainability must be central to the winemaking cycle. When I arrived at Caliterra I was impressed by the enthusiasm and passion that had been applied to the concept since the beginning. Besides being the pioneer in the creation of the Chilean sustainability code, which guides all decisions at the vineyard, Caliterra is constantly working on finding new technologies and methodologies to be in line with this code and that can help us to improve the quality of our wines. I fully identify with this and therefore, sustainability is, and always will be, the modus operandi in every action we take.
