Meet the Winemaker | Vaglio Wines
We are stoked to have José in the shop this Wednesday, September 21st! He is the winemaker for Vaglio and is also the son and winemaker for Susana Balbo. Each of the wines use the terroir to tell the story of different stages of his life.
José Lovaglio is a young, third generation winemaker. At the age of 18, he enrolled at University of California at Davis and in 2008 he graduated with a degree in oenology from UC Davis. After college, he moved to China where he continued his wine education at Beijing Normal University. While in China, José worked for ASC Fine Wines, China’s largest distributor of fine wines, and also as a staff trainer and Sommelier for the Westin Hotel in Beijing.
Before becoming the winemaker for Bodini, José was a winemaker at Zemlia, a small family-run winery in the Maipu region of Mendoza. In 2011, after spending three years under the tutelage of one of Argentina’s top winemakers (his mom), she handed over the reins to the winemaking for Crios.
