Gustavo Bauzá

Head Winemaker, Portillo Wines

For Gustavo Bauzá, being an enologist is a satisfaction and a way of life. Making unique and unrepeatable products that will cause a sensation of enjoyment and pleasure were the reasons that led him to become a winemaker. He studied in the city of Mendoza, where he was born and currently resides with his wife and children. He was educated in the Agriculture and Enology Lyceum Domingo F. Sarmiento of the Cuyo National University, where he got his Enology degree. He also holds a degree in Enology and Fruit and Horticulture Industries in the Don Bosco School of the Juan Agustin Maza University, and, more recently, he has finished a wine oriented MBA in the same institution. According to Bauzá, every moment is good for wine drinking, it’s just about finding good company. As he says, the wine, like the food, transmits a lot about the culture of a people, and it’s a center for meetings and pleasant moments. Today, as the enologist and winemaker for Portillo, his greatest challenge of every grape harvest is to reach the highest potential of the fruit.

José Galante

Chief Winemaker, Bodegas Salentein

With more than 40 vintages under his belt, José Galante has been considered the father of modern winemaking in Argentina. Galante’s influence has reached across generations and transformed Argentine wines, bringing them to the international stage. Before joining Bodegas Salentein as chief winemaker in 2010, Galante was chief winemaker at Catena Zapata Group for more than thirty years and worked with numerous international wine consultants. Galante’s winemaking philosophy is to fully preserve the full spectrum of fruit, aromas and flavors through a smooth, gentle winemaking process utilizing cutting-edge technology. He believes that oak should be present in wine without overwhelming the character of the grape or terroir; thus creating aromatic, highly concentrated wines with fine tannins and smooth, silky textures.
