Susana Balbo Wines
In 1999, after working more than 20 years as a consultant winemaker for national and international wine companies, Susana decided to make her dream come true and started to build Susana Balbo Wines in the heart of Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza. After more than 10 years of steady growth in foreign markets, another one of her dreams was fulfilled: her children, José, winemaker, graduated from UC Davis (California) and Ana, Bachelor of Business Administration from University San Andrés (Buenos Aires) decided to go on with the family tradition and join Susana Balbo Wines team.
Equipped with state-of-the-art technology, Susana Balbo Wines is characterized by its simple and unique architecture, designed for the production of high-end wines. Each grape variety is hand- picked and carefully handled so as to maintain the fruit expression and achieve wines with a singular unique style.
During the last few years, Susana and her team have been working tirelessly on meeting the international highest quality standards and have showed their commitment to some of the major issues of the 21st century: food safety, environmental sustainability and corporate social responsibility.

"The lychee and perfumed floral notes of the Torrontés is powerful, but there's a flinty character too that is very attractive, with the palate showing delightful fruit intensity and a huge blast of grapefruit. Delicious acidity and intensity, long and shimmering salty acidity" (93/100 James Suckling 2015 vintage)
An ideal accompaniment to a Thai green curry.
