Winemaking legend, Susana Balbo was the first female winemaker in Argentina and is now considered a national icon for her work developing new regions and wine styles. She now works closely with her daughter and two sons on her own-label wines that have been hugely successful around the world. The Susana Balbo Signature White Blend is a very aromatic wine with floral and citrus notes that are combined with hints of fresh grass, white fruits and orange. It has a divine silky texture from barrel ageing and a wonderfully crisp finish. Lots of ageing potential to gain complexity with time, but already delicious.

“The creation of my wines at Susana Balbo Wines is to me the maximum achievement as a winemaker, product of all my efforts and many years of hard work. I could say that the winery is like my third child, a dream come true.” Susana.
Born into a traditional family, Susana reneged of her fate since she was young by applying to study nuclear physics in Bariloche. Being this a very unconventional choice for the time, her parents refused to let her leave Mendoza. From that point, Susana decided to follow the family business (viticulture) professionally, thus challenging the contemporary social beliefs, because at that time no women had graduated as winemaker.
