Ignacio Recabarren: Winemaking legend

The distinguished winemaker, Ignacio Recabarren, was named a Winemaking Legend by Tim Atkin MW, in his 2020 Chile Special Report.

This important recognition, announced on March 20th on the website of British critic, Tim Atkin, places Ignacio Recabarren at the top of the 2020 podium. 

Ignacio Recabarren, who now works as a winemaking advisor for Concha y Toro, is without a doubt one of the top role models of the Chilean wine industry.
