Yamila Ale was only 23 years old when she discovered her passion. She founded Yamila Ale Chef in Mar del Plata, Argentina, a healthy food company devoted to helping individuals interested in maintaining a healthy lifestyle or losing weight. A great success, the company grew exponentially in its first year and continued to do so until its sale in 2010.
She moved to La Rioja in northern Spain after identifying that the local tourism needed an alternative accommodation solution. Founded in 2009, she set up Apartmentos con Encanto, apartments available for tourists interested in experiencing the region’s wineries. The company was successfully sold in 2017.
Yamila is currently the Managing Director of Pure The Winery España & LATAM. Launched in December 2019, it offers exclusive wines with no sugar, no carbohydrates and 50 - 60% less calories per glass, returning to the market with a healthy proposal. Since its launch, Pure The Winery has gone from strength to strength, featuring in multiple news sources worldwide, with impressive and positive feedback.
A highly experienced wine and property professional with over 15 years’ experience in the hospitality industry, Yamila also manages a number of luxury villas and apartments in Ibiza alongside the aforementioned apartments in La Rioja, a select wine tourist region of northern Spain.
A keen golfer, having started at 5 years old, she was fortunate enough to represent Argentina from the age of 14 to 18. Yamila is based between Madrid and London, yet travels extensively to Latin America for business. Yamila is a graduate of Universidad CAECE, Buenos Aires and was further educated in Barcelona.
