Rafa Urrejola of Viña Undurraga briefly thought of becoming a sports journalist, but then switched back to winemaking as a career. A narrow escape for both him and us! Listen to us chat about the Terroir Hunter project that takes him to every corner of Chile, how he ended up as a cool climate specialist by accident, his love of Maule Valley Carignan and why he dislikes the term “icon wine”.
To read more about Rafa, have a look at Viña Undurraga’s website. You can also follow the winery on Instagram @undurragawines.
