L iz Sathe of Folio Fine Wine Partners presented 10 wines from the iconic Argentine winemaker Susana Balbo who, in 1999, founded the Dominio del Plata Winery in the Lujan de Cuyo region of Mendoza. She was the first female enologist in the history of Argentine winemaking, and is credited with creating the floral, citrusy style of Torrentes that has become Argentina’s signature white. Balbo’s reds are all very highly regarded, she’s known as one of the finest Malbec producers in the region.
As usual they had their famous heavy hors d’oeuvres during the break.
