Felipe Tosso wanted to be a professional tennis player or a civil engineer in his teens, but we wine lovers should be grateful he chose a different career. First with Concha y Toro and now, for over 20 years, at Viña Ventisquero, he has established himself as one of Chile’s leading winemakers. Listen to us chat about his love of the colour blue, what it’s like working with a vineyard in the middle of the Atacama Desert and why winemaking has so much in common with cooking and painting.
To read more about Felipe, have a look at the Viña Ventisquero website. You can also follow the winery on Instagram @ventisquero_wines
