Alberto was born in Santiago in 1946, third generation in Chile of a German family. His grandfather was a German architect that built some very important and traditional buildings in downtown Santiago, at the beggining of the 20th century. His father, don Germán, was a viticulturist who spent most of his career in front of Viña San Pedro's vineyards where Alberto grew up, literally in the middle of the vines. It was not a surprise then, that he decided to study Agronomy in the Catholic University, in Santiago. After finishing High School, he spent a year working in some wineries in Germany and when he came back in 1971, he joined the German company Bayer. His job then was to sell fertilisers to farm owners in the Colchagua area, 100 miles south of Santiago, where he established. This job allowed him to know almost every land owner, of which most where grape growers and wine producers. A few years later and as a natural consequence, he started to act as wine and grape broker, selling the production of small owners to the big Chilean wineries. He soon became the most important Chilean broker in this field, position that he holds today by far. There is hardly any Chilean person or Company involved in the wine business that has not dealt with Alberto Siegel at least once. Alberto founded Viña Siegel in 1980, planting vineyards in Colchagua and building the Winery in Santa Cruz. At the begining, Viña Siegel only sold bulk wines to the biggest Chilean wineries, but in 1997, Alberto decided to enter the bottled wines business, and made the necessary investments to go ahead with this project. Now, the Winery has a capacity of 2 million gallons and the Company owns over 1,300 acres of vineyards in Colchagua. Read less
