Mar­cos Fer­nan­dez – Doña Paula wine­maker


Q What in­spires you as a wine­maker?

A My sur­round­ings are pretty hard to beat! Wak­ing up each morn­ing with a view of the An­des, the fan­tas­tic team I have around me and the qual­ity and po­ten­tial that my vine­yards have is a spe­cial com­bi­na­tion. Q Where are you hap­pi­est?

A A rib of beef, an Asado at home with my wife and friends and a great bot­tle of Mal­bec. Q What motto do you live by? A No mat­ter what you do, there is

al­ways room for im­prove­ment. Q What is your most trea­sured pos­ses­sion?

A Af­ter re­cov­er­ing from a se­ri­ous ill­ness as a child, you can­not underestimate the value of good health to en­joy life. Q What is your most mem­o­rable wine?

A One wine that blew my mind was an Olivier Le­flaive, Che­va­lier-Mon­tra­chet Grand Cru, but on a more af­ford­able level my Doña Paula Se­lec­ción de Bodega is pretty im­pres­sive.
