Top 50 most powerful women in wine: 40-31

33. MARIÁ JOSÉ LÓPEZ DE HEREDIA

AGE: 44
Rioja’s leading lady, María José López de Heredia, presides over one of the most prestigious wineries in the region, renowned for its traditional reds and unusual aged white Rioja made in the oxidative style from barrel-aged Viura. A champion of the much-maligned Viura grape, fourth-generation López de Heredia was one of the only producers to continue making traditional barrel-aged white Rioja when it fell out of fashion. The style is becoming popular again, not least due to López de Heredia’s perseverence. A flag- bearer for female professionals in all spheres, her winery in Haro features a shop designed by world renowned, Iraq- British architect Zaha Hadid.

    I do hope Sandrine Garbay is top – she does after all make the best wine in the world bar none!

    • Martin Campion says:

      Steve, Sandrine comes a close second, but top spot surely goes to Katharina Pum. Berenice Lurton is # three, obviously.

  2. I would Tanya Torr right up very close to the top .
