Susana Balbo talks about `being brave`-graduating as the first female enologist in Argentina in 1981, then going out to the world with her Malbec, befor it was internationally known, and becoming a part of the worldwide success story that is Argentinian Malbec. Grown at over 1100 metres above sea level, hand-harvested, a long maceration period before ageing in French oak for nine months, gives a wine full of fresh fruit, designed for easy drinking across generations and food styles.

The most recognised and well-known female oenologist in Argentina, Susana Balbo has been instrumental in the transformation of quality table wines in Argentinean viticulture. She is best known for her innovation and progressive spirit in developing wines with unique character and quality, and she is the first Argentinean oenologist ever hired as a consultant by European wineries. At Susana Balbo Wines, her family's winery in the famed Mendoza wine region of Argentina, Susana crafts her own signature label wines. They embody the complexity of various grapes along with her creativity as an oenologist to produce fine wines that express prestige, power and finesse. For her Crios label, which means "offspring" (as in children), Susana selected a word to express the notion that these are wines given loving care and attention deserving of her children. The three hands on the label, inspired by a Mayan artefact, represent Susana and her two children. By definition, Crios is to be enjoyed while still young and vibrant.
