The Team

FRANCISCO BAETTIG
Francisco was born in Santiago in 1969 and has been Chief Winemaker at Viña Errázuriz since 2003. Francisco holds a degree in Agricultural Engineering from the University of Chile and a Master’s degree in enology from the university of Bordeaux.

“While appreciating ripe and round tannins my permanent challenge is to always bring elegance, finesse and balance to our wines”, FRANCISCO BAETTIG

JORGE FIGUEROA
Jorge Figueroa Valenzuela has been the Agricultural Manager of Viña Errazuriz since 2008. Among his functions are the supervision of the vineyards, the renovation of the vegetal material and the development of new projects. The close connection he has developed with the winemaking team has allowed him to practice a viticulture directly linked to the quality sought after in the wines. Personally, Figueroa is a lover of good wine, concerned with understanding how the terroir expresses itself through them.
