More about today’s guest
The daughter of Susana Balbo, Argentina’s first female winemaker, Ana Lovaglio was born in Salta, grew up in Mendoza and studied Business Administration at the Universidad de San Andrés, in Buenos Aires. In 2012 she returned to Mendoza to join her mother’s winery as Susana Balbo’s Marketing and Hospitality Manager. Ana’s entrepreneurial spirit led her to open Osadía de Crear in 2013. Osadía is the first restaurant of the winery, whose haute dishes are specifically designed to pair with Susana Balbo’s wines. In addition, in 2015, she opened Espacio Crios, a multi-space conceived to offer a more laid-back wine tourism proposal and host all kinds of events thanks to the winery’s large gardens. Finally, in 2022 she decided to enter the world of wellness by creating -along with her mother- Susana Balbo Unique Stays, a luxury boutique hotel that allows people to be Susana’s guests at their exclusive Winemaker’s House & Spa Suites.
