I had the pleasure of working with Cristóbal Toral of Viña Requingua for over two years. I was coming out with a new wine label (#sidewayswine) and Cristóbal was intimately involved in the marketing and distribution of my wine.

Bilingual, and extremely articulate, I found working with Cristóbal to be a joy. He is a paragon of professionalism in every aspect in which we worked and I couldn't recommend him with a greater ringing endorsement for any position to which he is qualified he applies for.

I have the distinct pleasure of working with Cristóbal Toral of Viña Requingua for over 8 years. His kind, approachable manner and the thorough and professional way that he attends to his duties, are to be commended. He is also very involved with community in Miami and has participated and presented his wines at various hotel events. I am confident that he will make a success of whatever task he undertakes both for himself and his clientele.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Cristobal for over ten year, as my first tennis instructor and then we start sharing the love for wine and the hospitality industry....anecdotally I am pretty sure I gave Cristobal his first book about wines!

I am so proud of calling Cristobal a friend and been able of seeing him grow as a amazing and very successful professional. Cristobal is one of the most talented wine professional I have worked with. Cristobal positive and go to attitude have make every project he embarks on becoming a complete success. If there is someone I would recommend to partner, with full knowledge and years of expertise in the wine and retail industry that would be Cristobal.

Having experienced leaders in your corner is a big advantage in the world of wine and business, and I’m lucky to have met someone like Cristobal Toral who fits that role. He is not only a mentor, but a strong voice for South American wine in the U.S. and Central American market. We worked together to bring more awareness to the fine wines of Chile in Miami during the fall of 2022 and his generosity and passion helped us move forward in that regard. Anyone interested in wine and business could benefit immensely from just one conversation with Cristobal.
