Bodega Luigi Bosca
For many years, four generations of grape growers have worked, with absolute passion and devotion to the land, to understand the intention of the vineyard. The major pillars on which Luigi Bosca has consolidated its credentials are a prestige based on the expertise gained and transferred over the years, the sustained and homogeneous quality of its wines, and a perpetual quest for excellence through innovation and state-of-the-art technology. Today, the Winery is a leading player in the great wines segment of the Argentine domestic market, while it has also achieved a strong and valued position in global markets. Located in Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza, the Winery’s architectural design is classic, and the building was built over an old mill originally located in the place.
The firm has always built upon the notion of continuously searching for the best terroir for each vine. The terroir is a limited space where the physical and chemical conditions of the soil, the geographic location, and the climate, yield specific and differentiated products. In addition, the terroir is influenced by conditions such as altitude, plant orientation, slopes, rainfall distribution, the sunlight hours, etc. With the intention of approaching the Terroir with utmost respect, Bodega Luigi Bosca has adopted some of the most beneficial standards inherent to the biodynamic planting system, based on a work philosophy that seeks to boost the plant to make it fit for self-defense.
The promotion of biodiversity is one of the biodynamic keys applied by Bodega Luigi Bosca: the vineyard has never been in isolation. We should make it feel part of a comprehensive system, and make it live with, and be enhanced by other species. The firm owns seven vineyard estates located in privileged areas of Mendoza: Lujan de Cuyo, Maipú and Valle de Uco. The different vine varieties grown in these areas were brought from Europe towards the end of the XIX century, so today’s vineyards are the result of a selection of the best old family vineyards.
