Óscar holds a degree in Agricultural Engineering with a mention in Viticulture and Enology from Universidad Católica of Chile.He began working at Viña Santa Rita in October 2016 after a successful period at Terra Andina—another Santa Rita Estates winery—from 2005 to 2011. During that time, he played a role in that winery’s significant growth and earning important international recognition by developing emblematic wines such as Suyai.
