For most of my life, I’ve lived in Buenos Aires and worked in Business Administration. Yet, after being stuck in the same routine for so long, I decided it was time to leave behind my life in Buenos Aires and seek out a new adventure. About seven years ago, my wife moved to Mendoza where I had chosen to pursue my calling as a university professor. Not only did I find my new profession, but also my new passion.
Through living in Argentina’s wine capital, I have become absolutely captured by its wine culture and how wine is so central to local life. I love learning everything about wine, from the ritual of its production to food and wine pairings to the importance and traditions behind the annual harvest festival. After immersing myself in the world of Mendoza wines, I decided to extend my classroom beyond the university and start teaching all I had learned about viticulture. Four years ago, I started leading wine tours so I could share with other people my love of Mendoza’s wines. For me, this region’s wine culture is constantly transforming, creating a dynamic and exciting place to visit. Let me teach you all about it; after all, I am a professor.
