Emily Faulconer of Viña Carmen is one of the most talented and well-travelled young winemakers in Chile. Listen to her talk about why she speaks English with a cut-glass accent, the women that have inspired her, her exciting DO project focused on old vines and how she coped with the solitude of living in the Andes at Viñedos Alcohuaz for a year and half.
You can follow Emily on Instagram @efaulconer. For more information about Viña Carmen’s wines, go to the company’s website.
