Santa Ema's Don Félix Pavone Leaves Legacy Behind


Date: 10/02/13

Santa Ema deeply regrets to communicate the passing of founder and owner, Don Félix Pavone Arbea.

The Pavone family migrated to Chile in 1917 working first as grape farmers in Isla de Maipo. In 1956, Don Félix and his father Don Pedro Pavone Voglino founded Santa Ema winery. His long-time experience and pursuit of producing exceptional wine led Don Félix to seek Maipo Valley’s finest terroirs, from the Andes to the Pacific Ocean, and introduce the Chilean wine industry to the U.S.

Married to Catalina Moreno Rodillo for 59 years, the couple had four children: Maria Cecilia, Pilar, Rossana and Félix. Today, Rossana and Félix oversee the winery, the Pavone family’s third generation to do so.

Santa Ema is thankful for the valuable legacy Don Félix has left behind.

Founded nearly 100 years ago by the Pavone family, Santa Ema remains a family-owned winery and is today Chile’s leading ultra-premium brand. Santa Ema crafts generous, elegant, fruit-driven wines produced in Isla de Maipo, the premier growing area in the acclaimed Maipo Valley.
