About Susana Balbo :
"In 1981 Susana received her degree in oenology and became the first woman in Argentina to do so. Her career started in Cafayate, Salta province at Michel Torino winery where she was in charge of developing and stylizing the Torrontes varietal. Afterwards, she worked at many well-regarded wineries such as Martins and Catena Zapata.
In 1999, with almost two decades dedicating her talent to national and international companies in the wine business working as a consultant, Susana Balbo decided to make her dream of having a winery of her own come true and that was the moment Susana Balbo Wines put down roots in the heart of Luján de Cuyo Mendoza.
In 2012, she was recognized as one of the "Most influential women wine-makers" by The Drink Business magazine. Later, in 2015, she was awarded by the same magazine as "Woman of the year". Recently in 2018, the magazine recognized her again by including her in the list of "The 10 most influential women in the wine world"."
