Emily Faulconer studied Agricultural Engineer at the Universidad Católica de Chile. Her passion for what she does, has led her, among other things, to live for a year and a half in the Elqui Valley, leading the planning, operation and execution of the viticulture and oenological work of Viñedos Alcohuaz. She has also worked in wineries in the United States (Cakebread Cellars), New Zealand (Trinity Hill Winery) and France (Chateau Canon).
Faulconer has also previously worked as Chief Winemaker in Viña Arboleda, leading the viticulture and winemaking areas, focusing on the production of fine wines with a sense of origin. Prior to this she worked as assistant winemaker in Maquis and Viu Manent, both located in the Colchagua Valley.
Aged 32, Faulconer will take over the premium range of Carmen, focusing on producing wines showing specific varietal and terroir identity. She will also be responsible for the continuation and strengthening of internationally acclaimed innovative projects that Carmen has launched recently, which have led it to position itself as one of the most innovative wineries in the country, acclaimed both national and internationally.
