Dominio del Plata is a family-owned and run project of Susana Balbo (Enologist) and Pedro Marchevsky (Viticulturist). The core philosophies that they share, and that figure prominently in the production of their wines, are the following: Precision Viticulture This is a grape-growing philosophy that demands attention to detail, however small. The planting of the vineyards, varietal selections, vineyard management systems, water management, canopy conduction, sanitary precautions and harvesting decision are all managed personally by Pedro and Susana in order to achieve the highest quality standards. Sustainable Agriculture The entire project is specially designed and implemented in a way that doesn’t harm the natural resources, preserves the environment, functions according to social requirements, and at the same time maintains productivity in order to remain economically competitive. Superior Winemaking Skills Our winemaking skills and professional knowledge have been developed over more than two decades through intensive and prolonged education and research. From this accumulated knowledge, we have designed and constructed a winery that employs state-of-the-art enological technology for the processing of grapes and therefore the production of high-quality wine. Love and Passion Knowledge and experience are not the only keys to successful winemaking. Every step of top-quality wine production demands a love and a passion for the winemaking process in order to obtain a successful result. The dedication and diligence of our entire family working in the vineyard, in the winery and for the marketing of the wines gives the company its unique character. The constant search for perfection and the appreciation for fine wine, as well as our relationships with the people that contribute to the success of the winery, is physically embodied in the beauty of the Dominio del Plata Winery.

Marvelous rose' from Susana Balbo and yet another lesson on the flexibility of the Malbec grape. The dominant fruit is strawberries, not cherries. Perhaps we are so used to invoking cherries and red currants in our reviews of this useful grape that we forget to look for the more subtle fruits that emerge from the process of making rose's. When I asked one of my favorite wine merchants (Rick Lewis of the Madison CTWine shop) to name some of his favorite rose's, his selection was overweighted toward Provence. He included Balbo's Rose' and we marveled at the colour and accessibility on the palate. And then the strawberries. What a mistake to exclude Rose's from the well rounded cellar. Include this one.

    I decided to get into roses this summer, and of those that I have tried so far, the Crios is the most enjoyable. Deep pink color for a rose, and neither too sweet nor too dry. Wonderful summer wine at a decent price.

    This rosé is deep cherry in color and made from the Malbec grape variety, which has been absolutely thriving in Argentina's Mendoza region lately. This is very easy to drink: ripe, soft, and full of dark berry fruit on the palate - black cherries and red currants. Susana Balbo and her husband have been making wine in Argentina for over 25 years, producing many excellent wines that are well worth a try.
