1. FRANCESCA PLANETA

“When I started there were not many women in the wine business. It was really a man’s world traditionally. Women had worked in the country, but never actually worked in the front “cover”. After 17 generations, I was probably the first of my family to actually go out and say, “Hi, here I am! We’re the women, and we’re working here.” _ Francesca Planeta, PLANETA Winemaker.

Producing blockbuster international varietals as well as sublime wines from indigenous Italian grapes such as Nero d'Avola and Fiano, Planeta is one of the premier wine estates of Sicily and a veritable fine wine empire.

2. SUSANA BALBO

Susana Balbo is the first female winemaker in Argentina. She has been praised as the "Most influential women wine-makers", “Woman of the year”, “The 10 most influential women in the wine world” by Drinks International, and “The Best Winemaker in Argentina” by Forbes magazine.

Susana Balbo is well-known for her innovative style of elaborating Torrontes, which has earned her the nickname “Queen of Torrontes”, a tribute to the native Argentine grape that she has helped grow into the most important white varietal in the country.

3. KHANH NGUYEN BATZELLA

 

Khanh Nguyen Batzella is the one and only Vietnamese lady winemaker. Together with her husband Franco Batzella, they founded Batzella Winery in Bolgheri, Tuscany.

Though leaving her home-country at a very young age, Vietnam is what Khanh always holds dear. She gave her most outstanding wine a Vietnamese name, TÂM, whose inspiration came from Vietnam’s National Epic “The Tale of Kieu” written by Nguyen Du: Rather than your technical expertise, you can do everything better when you put your heart and soul (Tâm) into it.

“The passion deriving from the heart

Outweighs all talents on this earth”.
