Women and wine: María Isabel Mijares and Jancis Robinson

EtiquetasPublishing date: 13/11/2015
They speak out


Wine is not only a men’s world and we want to dedicate this space to two of the most important women in red, white, sweet and sparkling wines. Two women that in their day to day move themselves among aromas and grapes, that have oponed paths and whise opinions is an absolute reference.

María Isabel Mijares, for her love of the senses

Her training as a chemist and percetive capacities brought her to turn to the world of wine, studying in Bordeaux with the prestigious Emile Peynaud. Doctor in Oenology and in Sensorial Analysis, apart from entrepreneur, she began her professional path in Spain in a Bierzo winery, became President of the AOC Valdepeñas and successfully occupied a long list of important positions in the wine sector.

Today she manages Equipo Team, a consulting firm specialised in the agroalimentary industry that includes a laboratory for sensorial analisis. Tireless master, she is a usual member and participant of reknown national and international events and a loyal communicator in the media. She directs the tasting group that gives punctuations for the Guía Repsol, which by the way has awarded El Médico with 93 points, El Músico with 92 points and El Aprendiz, 90 points for its white wine, and 89 points for its red and rose wines.

We thank her for choosing oenology instead of perfumes, another of the “chemical” branches she was initially interested in. We would have missed this great woman of wine and the best divulger of Spanish culture in Europe and Latin America.

Jancis Robinson, between wines and letters

Her passion for wine began with when she was assistant in the Wine&Spirit magazine, key moment in the career of this British student in maths and philosophy.

Master of Wine since 1984, she is a globally recognised critic and writer specialised in wine, columnist for the Financial Times and editor of her own website; with articles, tasting reviews and a complete calendar of events concerning wine as well as didactic información about wine producers, zones, grape varieties and other ressources.

Jancis Robinson is author of the The Oxford Companion Wine, an encyclopedia about wine whose first edition was published 1994. She is also co-author of The World Atlas of Wine, with the wine expert Hugh Johnson, another book of reference for wine amateurs.

She had the opportunity to try our Rescatado Albarín blanco 2013, and her own words were: “Variety indigenous to the valleys around Leon. Only 100 ha are planted in the whole world. Free-run juice slowly fermented in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks and aged on fine lees for two months. Very pale. Racy and lively. Firm and fine. Not a trace of sweetness. Really interesting. Rescued by Professor Pedro González Mittelbrunn! Juicy and thirst quenching. But quite uncompromising.”.
