Top 50 most powerful women in wine: 30-21

30. SUSANA BALBO

AGE: 52
Known to many as the “Evita of Wine”, Balbo is the most famous female winemaker in Argentina. Earning her oenology degree in 1981, her work as the first Argentine consultant abroad took her to Australia, California, Chile, France, Italy, South Africa and Spain. After 20 years of producing wine for other people, in 1999 Balbo struck out on her own and created Dominio del Plata, in Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza, in the middle of a 20-hectare vineyard planted with Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Torrontés. Selling the wines under her own name, Balbo also has a line of fruit- forward second wines, Crios de Susana Balbo, designed to be enjoyed young.
