Can you please tell us a little about the group of wineries?
Vina Concha Y Toro is not only Latin America’s biggest wine company but now also one of the largest wine companies in the world. Founded over 130 years ago (so New World wines are not so new!) by Don Melchor, Concha Y Toro has been a pioneer of Chilean wine in the world, and has then expanded into wines from the neighbouring country of Argentina and most recently California. Despite this expansion, Concha Y Toro has stayed very true to its roots, it is still very much a family owned company and has one overriding desire, to produce the best quality wines at every price level. So from entry level brands like Frontera and Vina Maipo, up to Don Melchor which is one of the world’s best Cabernet Sauvignon’s (having been named No. 9 in Wine Spectator’s Top 100 Wines of the Year in 2014) we think we offer great value to the people that drink our wine.
This level of quality comes from the fact that unlike some other big wine companies, we don’t buy wine from anyone, we only buy grapes and make all our own wines. Concha Y Toro is the 2nd largest owner of vineyards in the world (around 11,000 hectares) and all of the grapes for our premium wines come from our own vineyards, or growers where we have long relationships and the active involvement of our winemakers in their vineyards. From these vineyards, we produce a huge variety of wines which can now be found in over 140 countries worldwide…(READ MORE)

Cold weather is for fires, fuzzy socks and warm comfort foods but at the same time, it always increases the chances of us catching nasty colds, which put a damper in everything. Even in the warmer climates, flu season exists and seems to claim dozens of victims every year. One of the best ways people deal with the common cold and flu is getting a vaccination to keep it at bay. On top of this, food is one of the best ways to keep yourself healthy because a lot of it possesses qualities that boost your immune system and stops you from getting the sniffles. The key is knowing the right foods to incorporate into your diet to the benefit of your body. (READ MORE)

The idea of the brand has evolved to include people in today’s individualistic and fast moving world. This means that people now have to consider what perception of themselves they are sending out to the rest of the world; this used to be the reserved for celebrities and politicians but now with social media and technology ordinary people also have to think of their own brands. Personal brands are important, especially in entrepreneurship because they determine who likes and responds to you. A brand can easily attract people or put them off depending on how strong and believable it is so some careful consideration will have to be applied especially when it comes to personal brand reinvention…..

How long have you been a Mompreneur?
I started freelancing in 2008 (graphic design and photography) but that was easy and I wasn’t taking any risk. So I would say 2012 is when I truly became a mompreneur.
Tell us a little about how you got started?
The company I’d worked for had closed down in 2012, I was interviewing for a new position and was never satisfied with the people or firms I met with. I eventually realised that it was because I didn’t want to work for a third party anymore… Starting In Situ was something which had been at the back of my mind for a couple of years back then. I had contacted the designers and artists in 2010 and we’d started working on the project but I’d chickened out because it was a huge financial investment and honestly, I got scared. It took me two year to take the step……(READ MORE)
