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.

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean writes about wine with a sensuous obsession... and often laugh-out-loud funny... Terrific.

Rex Pickett, Sideways

Ms. MacLean is the disarming Everywoman. She loves wine, loves drinking ... ultimately, it's a winning formula.

Unquenchable: A Tipsy Search

  Best Books of the Year

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.

Gary Vaynerchuck, Wine Library TV
