Pedro holds a PhD in terroir viticoles from the Paris Center of Agriculture, with six years experience in French terroirs, including Burgundy and Bordeaux. As a highly respected consultant working in several countries and terroirs (Chile, Argentina, USA, Italy, Canada, France, Spain), Pedro brings an open mind and vision to winemakers and viticulturists alike.

His innovative work was included in the prestigious 'Decanter Magazine Power List' in 2009, 2011 and 2013. Pedro has been described as a leading figure of the 'New Chile and Argentinean' movement by the international press, in part because of his constant endeavour to bring a new vision to the Chilean wine industry, searching for quality terroirs and developing new plantings throughout the country.

Pedro is also a wine producer, he co-produces the Chilean cult brands ARISTOS and Clos des Fous, and works alongside Vosne-Romanee producer Louis Michel Liger-Belair. He is also partner with Alberto Antonini in Altos las Hormigas in Mendoza and started his family’s own project, Pedro Parra y Familia, in 2013.
