30 winemakers under 40 to watch (part 3)

30. Sebastian Zuccardi (33) 

The bright, blue-eyed, eldest son of José Alberto Zuccardi, director of Familia Zuccardi, was put in charge of winemaking across his family estate’s entire range last year. Based in Mendoza, from a young age Sebastian showed signs of sharing his father’s passion for wine.

Going on to graduate with a degree in agronomy, after harvests in Bordeaux, Champagne, Italy and California, in 2000 Zuccardi founded his own sparkling wine project with three friends called Alma Cuatro, that aimed to push the envelope through experimenting with grape varieties not traditionally planted in Argentina.

Back at his family estate, Zuccardi is heavily involved with the production of a traditional method blanc de blancs sparkling wine, and is passionate about proving that Argentina is capable of producing world class, ageworthy fizz, albeit in small quantities. He is also convinced of red grape Bonarda’s potential in Argentina.
