B-21 Top Recommendation
Awarded one of the "Most influential women winemakers" in the world by The Drink Business magazine in 2012, and "Woman of the year" by that same publication 3 years later, Susana Balbo has certainly earned her place – well ahead of the curve in the modern era of Argentina's winemaking scene. The dream of a lifetime – she calls it her third child – her eponymous winery sits center stage as a beacon for others to emulate. Now managing four, unique and completely individual lines, Balbo works to create the perfect wine to suit multiple consumer preferences from her various vineyard holdings throughout Mendoza. Her most impressive collection is the BenMarco line, built on traditional varietals grown at incredible altitudes. This is maybe her finest BenMarco Malbec yet.
