Argentina: women in wine

Paula Borgo

2Head winemaker for Spanish-owned Bodega Septima, Paula Borgo is responsible for the still and sparkling wine production of one of the bigger wineries in Mendoza.

Her path in the industry also began through family: “My relationship with wine is due to my father, he is an agronomist that is very well connected to the sector,” says Borgo. “As a young girl, the countryside, the vineyards and wine accompanied me through to my adolescence. I have many happy memories with a glass of wine in my hand, and then the passion transformed into an obsession, a study, a quest for perfection, and lots and lots of work!” Nowadays Borgo travels around the continent and further afield as not only the winemaker for Septima, but a female spokesperson for the wine industry.
