Susana Balbo

The Queen of Torrontés

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. Benmarco Malbec is an exclusive from Susana Balbo's son José.

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.

Susana Balbo Wines

Mendoza, where these vines are grown, is Argentina’s foremost wine region, and it is responsible for the country’s best bottles. The province is located at around thirty degrees south of the equator. This is the northern limit of wine grape production, any closer to the equator and the grapes would shrivel in the heat. The Andes, that lie between Mendoza and Chile, raise the land to an altitude that counterbalances the equatorial heat. The result is that the vineyards of Mendoza are some of the highest in the world, between 600m and 1,100m above sea level
