Concha y Toro's CEO Eduardo Guilisasti is 9th in Decanter's 2011 Power List Decanter's 2011 Power List brings together the wine world's 50 most important movers and shakers.

SANTIAGO, Chile, May 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Compiled every two years, each entrant must have a direct influence over the style of wine that consumers are currently drinking. The list aims to reflect the realities of the market and includes pioneering winemakers, lawmakers and politicians, leading CEO's and media figures. Decanter consulted a large number of industry leaders in the process.

The top 10 most influential people in the wine industry, according to Decanter Magazine are:

1.

Decanter Magazine says, "Guilisasti has been the boss of Concha y Toro, Chile's leading wine company by far, since 1989. 2011 is arguably the most significant year of his tenure as company CEO, marking as it does his first major venture outside South America – the acquisition of Brown-Forman's California based Fetzer."

It concludes, "The trick of Guilisasti's reign at Concha y Toro has been that the company's ever-increasing scale has not diminished its credibility or the consistency of its wines. A benchmark for big brands across the globe."
