The Winemaker is a lover of good wines enjoying each and every drink and corkage. He enjoys his working hours and the time he spends between friends, family or any good company. He carries on his shoulders a responsibility, often having to select the best cut, among many other responsibilities. He is a tireless worker who performs his work not only because he must, but because he is passionate about it.
In such a significant wine producing province as Mendoza, when we speak of the grape and its derivatives, can not be overlooked an important date in the national wine calendar: Winemaker’s Day. It is held every September 7, recalling the day the president Domingo Sarmiento inaugurated the Normal Quinta de San Juan in 1862. Entity later renamed National School Fruit Growing and Enology. From that place came to Mendoza the first technicians trained in the art of winemaking, and already facing the industry.
This day was instituted in 2002 by an agreement between the Centre of Winemakers and the Professional Council of Winemakers of San Juan, as well as other entities, but prior to that date workers of enology payed tribute in August 6, under the date “Agricultural Education Day”.
