How did you get interested in wine?\r\nI'm born and raised in Chile. In the summertime it was not very popular to have a job. I had a friend who had a restaurant and he told me: \"Why not work during the summer? Do something to support yourself.\" I was 14. At the time, sommeliers were not popular. But people asked questions about wine. I bought my first guide [book] about wine to try to educate myself for that summer job.\r\nHow did you become interested in organic farming?\r\nWhen I went to university, my brother was doing agronomy. I thought, I'll do that too. I was a very poor student. It took me a while to finish my academic career. The thesis subject was assigned, based on your grades. I had very poor grades, so I got the last subject that nobody was interested in. That subject was organic farming. Álvaro Espinosa was the only winemaker doing organic farming in Chile at the time, for a winery called Carmen. I asked him: \"Is there any way I could go to the States?\" He called Paul Dolan and I got an internship at Fetzer. I moved to Ukiah. That was a culture shock.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nRelated stories:\r\n\r\n\r\n10 Things Every Wine Lover Should Know About Quintessa\r\n\r\n\r\nQ&A: Pablo Morande, Winemaker, Chile\r\n\r\n\r\nChilean Immerses His Wines in Jazz\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nWhere was your first winemaking job?\r\nI was a cellar rat, working for Jim Fetzer, and I moved back to Chile to work for a Croatian family called Matetic. I asked: \"What if you work in an organic way?\" We started working with biodynamics. The results were great. We were the first Pinot Noir from Chile with 90 points from Wine Spectator. Nobody was even thinking about Pinot Noir from Chile. We wanted to show Chile could do something different, with more personality.\r\nHow did you get back to California?\r\nI worked at Matetic for six years, but I decided to resign. [Biodynamic consultant] Alan York was there for harvest. I said it was going to be our last harvest together. He said: \"You can always come to California. At Benziger they are looking for a new winemaker.\" I became their chief winemaker from 2006 to 2012. That was an incredible experience, working in the Russian River Valley and the Sonoma Coast. All new challenges for me. I worked with David Ramey, who was a consultant. He was a tremendous example for me in terms of being very relaxed about winemaking. Trying to make the exercise as natural and simple as possible. When I decided to go back to Chile, I talked to Huneeus. They made me chief winemaker. I'm supposed to bring their projects up to standards.\r\nThe Huneeus' vineyard in Napa Valley, Quintessa, is biodynamic, but their Chilean properties aren't yet. Are you changing that?\r\nThey're in transition. The company is very concerned about the longevity of a vineyard. That's the key thing, more than the marketing of a wine. This is the best way of farming, no question about it, for quality and longevity. For volume, maybe not.\r\nHow has Chilean wine changed since you worked there before?\r\nCasablanca Valley was planted for the first time in the late '80s and early '90s. It's human nature to learn by trial and error. The genetic material [of the grapevines] was not appropriate. Decisions weren't made related to the soil types. Fine tuning viticulture will allow us to be more precise in the vineyard.\r\n#img2#\r\nYour Ritual Sauvig, non Blanc has a style we don't see much in the U.S., with tropical fruit character and a textural richness. How do you achieve that?\r\nWe ferment some of it in concrete \"eggs.\" There is a difference in texture, and that's always welcome in a simple variety like Sauvignon Blanc, when you can add variety and complexity. We also do barrel ferments for some of it with six- and seven-year-old barrels. Lees contact for seven or eight months makes Sauvignon Blanc taste very different.\r\nSpeaking of style, Chile has a challenge in that its small domestic wine market forces wineries to rely on exports, but the U.S. and Europe have very different expectations for wine style. How do you cope with that?\r\nThat's a central question for Chile. The only answer is for us to develop our own style of Chilean wines, with pride. Paying too much attention to the markets, you can get lost. There's no way that we can find a variety like the Argentinians did. Chile is very diverse from north to south. Chile's strength is its weakness: its diversity. We need to promote appellations, like Burgundy, like Italy, like California.\r\nWhat do you do for fun?\r\nI like cooking a lot. We have a lot of good fish in Chile. We have done very well in importing cuisine, but we have not done a good job of creating our own. Nobody's going to think about organic farming when their basic needs aren't being met. Now that Chile is developing as a country, the next step is to develop organics and gastronomy. But it takes time. I like to cook to put my wife in a good mood.\r\nHow did you meet your wife?\r\nShe's Chilean. We met at a New Year's Eve party. She was living in New York, working at J.P. Morgan. Then she quit her job and moved back to Chile and started working for Veramonte. It was a very random situation. You never expect to meet your wife at a party. We were both in our early 30s. It was not like in your 20s, a very accelerated conversation. It was a very nice pace. We have two daughters now, aged five and two. The oldest is trying to sneak in when I'm working and trying to smell the wine and find differences.","datePublished":"2014-08-18 00:00:00","dateModified":"2014-08-18 00:00:00","author":"@id":"https:\/\/\/bios","publisher":"@id":"https:\/\/\/#person","isPartOf":"@id":"https:\/\/\/m\/2014\/08\/rodrigo-soto-winemaker-for-huneeus\/#webpage","image":"@id":"\/images\/news\/43\/76\/Rodrigo-Soto-10004376.jpg","inLanguage":"en-US","mainEntityOfPage":"@id":"https:\/\/\/m\/2014\/08\/rodrigo-soto-winemaker-for-huneeus\/#webpage"}]} Latest News and FeaturesGreat Wines in the Shadow of the City

i have read dambisa's book on dead aid and what i see in your critisisms is just pulling the rope to your side as the blow from dambisa seems to come direct to you,i think it could have been better if you came with statistical data and examples of working aid like how dambisa did on her a Tanzanian so am on the battle ground and i can see how correct dambisa is.
