Q & A with Mailén Obon


Mailén Obon, traveler/winemaker/equestrian


Q. What are you most passionate about?

A. I am passionate about wine - of course -​ and horses​ but I love traveling and experiencing new things. I've been lucky to have lived in a few places. Ukraine, California and now Mexico. Working and living in ​La Santísima Trinidad allows me to do all three. Every day is an adventure, I get to explore a different part of the world, and I get to do it with a wine glass in hand! 



Q. Where have you travelled that most inspired you?

A. My most inspiring trip isn't the most exotic. It's actually an adventure I took with my friends in Mendoza where I'm originally from. We simply took a right down a road we always passed by on our way to work. We had never been down that road but we were always too busy o​r​ too tired. One day we did and we were rewarded with the most amazing view. We shared ​M​ate (Argentina's national drink and something you always share with friends) and some cookies. That moment inspires me every day - to appreciate what you have and never let the day to day "grind" get in the way of exploring.



Q. What's next?

A. I'm feeling a little like Mary Poppins these days. We'll see where the wind takes me!
