He also completed his postgraduate studies in small business and cooperatives management at Universidad de Santiago de Compostela. Beyond his education, Emilio worked as the technical director in various wineries in Galicia from 1990 to 1999, gaining considerable expertise in the region before assuming his position as lead winemaker at Terras Gauda in 1999.
Widely recognized as an innovator in the region, Emilio’s influence can be seen across the industry. Emilio has been a member of the Appeal and Tasting Committee of D.O.
