Known as El Colorado because of his red hair, Alejandro Sejanovich is one of the key figures in the modern Argentinian wine industry: a man who combines expertise in the vineyard with a magician’s touch in the winery. On World Malbec Day, we spoke about high-altitude vineyards, wine styles, minerality, his time at the prestigious École Nationale Supérieure in Montpellier and why a visit to a morgue put him off medicine for good.
To read more about Alejandro, have a look at the Manos Negras website. You can also follow him on Instagram @colosejanovich.
