Alta Cima Winery

Klaus Schröder is a fascinating and truly incredible individual. After studying oenology and vineyard management in Geisenheim, Germany, he set out to Chile in the mid-1960s to work in the, then, just establishing wine industry. For the first 30 years, he worked in three of the most well respected wineries across Chile but he then went on to create his own venture and thus AltaCima was born. Since then, Klaus has become the President of the Chilean Oenologists/Winemakers Association and he has a passion for passing on knowledge of winemaking to the next generation and doing everything he can to help build the reputation and diversity of the Chilean wine industry.
