Biography below

As a terroir expert, I was educated at the INSTITUT NATIONAL AGRONOMIQUE de PARIS GRIGNON during my Ph.D Terroir work (2001-2005). I also hold a Master degree on Precision Agriculture from the same Institute (1997-1998).

My work is mainly focus on understanding the relationship between WINE and TERROIR, and so, I spent 11 years making calicatas (pits), looking at vine roots and tasting wines in many different places in Chile and around the world.

My clients are mainly located in Chile, Argentina and Italy, but I have also worked in Sonoma, Okanagan, Armenia, Uruguay and Burgundy. In 2003, I understood that if I really wanted to be good, I needed to understand the wine world in aholistic way. It is not about SOIL, it’s about WINE, and so, I participate in a very active way in Altos lasHormigas, with my Italian long-time friends Alberto Antonini, Antonio Morescalchi and AttilioPagli, people who have really taught me alot about wine and life.

    Good morning, James.

    Idon’t know id you rememeber me but I was a frequent patron of the Specs in The Woodlands prior to our transfer to Norway, You also hosted a wonderful wine tasting at “Crescent Moon” for our 30th Anniversary back in Fe. 2014.

    In any event I am enroute to Austin to celebrate my daughter’s graduation from UT Law School. As you might surmise, there will be many parties and BBQ’s with your’s truly as the host. Therefore I need some advise on pairing both reds and whites Spicy Texas Q as well as a wine I could make several liters of Sangria. Can you advise also the location of the Specs in Austin as I will be making all of the purchases there.

    James,
    I did not hear back if there was room but it is not looking like I can make it anyway. If you were reserving a space for me you can give it to someone else.
