Argentina: women in wine

It seems surprising, but as recently as a generation ago, women in Argentina were kept at arm’s length by the wine industry. But today, as Amanda Barnes writes, the country is nurturing some of the brightest female winemaking talent in the world.

Argentina-Malbec-PickingTwenty years ago, one was hard-pressed to find a female working in the wine industry in Argentina, let alone a female winemaker. But today women are taking their place in the sector and this year’s Argentina Wine Awards boasted an all-female tasting panel, bringing to light the role that many of the so-called “fairer sex” now play in the industry.

This list looks at some of the female trailblazers in the industry, in particular some of the up-and-coming young female winemakers who are making their mark in Argentina.
