Argentina: women in wine

Paula Gonzalez

UntitledOne of the youngest female winemakers in the profession, 25-year-old Paula Gonzalez is second winemaker at Bodega Casarena in Luján de Cuyo. Working under head winemaker Bernardo Bossi Bonilla, Gonzalez has played a hand in the development and launch of their latest DNA range and single vineyard range. While Malbec is still the flagship of the winery, it is a different variety that is the apple in Gonzalez’s eye: “Malbec is one of the most important varieties for us, but I think Cabernet Franc is one that is going to explode,” she predicts.

With an early start to her career as a winemaker and under the guidance of an experienced team, like the lesser discovered varieties of Argentina, Gonzalez is one of the yet undiscovered new generation of female winemakers that will undoubtedly make an impression in the future of Argentine wine.
