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 or too tired. One day we did and we were rewarded with the most amazing view. We shared Mate (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!
