Winemaker

Sebastián Ruiz studied Agronomy at the Universidad de Chile with a “Merit Grant” which he obtained for academic excellence. His specialization in Winemaking and Viticulture was carried out at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, and in 1995 he passed the winemaking exam with the highest grade amongst his peers.

In 2014, Sebastián was called upon to lead the winemaking team at Viña Tarapacá, aiming to maintain the renowned winemaking excellence of the winery, but also to innovate and bring back elements of Terroir in his wines.

Sebastián Ruiz strongly believes in the huge potential of our winery. His objective is to create distinct Chilean wines which express their origin and fully represent the Maipo Valley. In this way, the wines harness the unique characteristics of the “Fundo El Rosario” estate,  giving  Viña Tarapacá’s distinct style -especially with the Gran Reserva Tarapacá range.
