Susana Balbo’s career in wine began in 1981 when she graduated with a degree in oenology from Don Bosco University, effectively becoming the first female winemaker in Argentina. She made her first wine – a Torrontés from Salta – in 1983 and since then hasn’t stopped! She began work on her own Dominio del Plata winery in Luján de Cuyo in 1999 and released the first vintage in 2002.
Today Susana is renowned throughout the world as an exceptional talent, not only in pure wine-making terms but as a global ambassador for Argentina. In 2014 she was elected to serve a third term as President of Wines of Argentina and in May 2015 she was named Woman of the Year by The Drinks Business.
