SARA BAÑUELOS, Technical Director of Bodegas Ramón Bilbao Rueda. Agricultural Engineer and Degree in Oenology at the University of La Rioja. Her favorite wine in the afternoon is Edicion Limitada and Ramón Bilbao Sauvignon Blanc fills her with positivity in the morning.
"I have been rooted in the world of wine right from the start; my family is from Rioja and it has always been something that has interested me a lot. While studying agricultural engineering, I combined my studies with traineeships and research work related to oenology and viticulture. Since I finished my studies I’ve been working in different wineries; first in La Rioja to become familiar with the different ways of working in small, large, family, and cooperative wineries, to explore where I would like to end up; and then once I joined Bodegas Ramón Bilbao, in Rueda, to get to know the region as much as possible.
Right now, I have a few years of hard work ahead on this great project, which I am passionate about as I have known it since its inception and been involved in every phase."
