Pablo Paredes was born in 1985 in Valladolid (Spain). The love for the vineyard and wine runs through his veins since he belongs to a family who, in a small town near to the Duero valley, planted their own vineyards more than 100 years ago and have been making wine for friends and family for 4 generations. 

He holds a degree in Business Administration and Management from the University of Valladolid. In Madrid, at ESIC Business & Marketing School completed the International Master of Foreign Trade (2011), and expanded his training at the Spain-US Chamber of Commerce in Miami (2012).

A passionate man about wine and international playgrounds, he moved into the US in 2012 for 6 years, developing his career involved into 2 family-owned spanish wineries (Matarromera Group, from Ribera del Duero, and Bodegas Vivanco from Rioja), and Wines of Brasil, a Brazilian Government´s organization to promote their wines in the United States. 

As a dreamed job, after keeping an eye for years on the successful evolution of Abadía Retuerta LeDomaine, Pablo Paredes joined the International Department team in January 2016. His mission is to develop and consolidate the international export operations and brand building of Abadía Retuerta LeDomaine in the Americas region. 

In 2017 Pablo Paredes moved into Madrid, and keeps leading operations the company in this region, traveling once a month to the US. Thanks to the fact of being located 1 hour away from Sardón de Duero, he can be closer to the vineyards and the winery technical team, which means a helpful factor in the WSET Level 3 certification progress.
