Vineyard & Wine Region Information
Founded in 1901 by Don Leoncio Arizu, Bodega Luigi Bosca has a long history of producing wine in Argentina. The Arizu family have been producing wine for over 100 years, and they are currently led by their third and fourth generations. Bodega Luigi Bosca is one of the few wine-producers that remains in the hands of its founding family, and was actively involved in the creation of the Luján de Cuyo DOC, the very first appellation in Argentina.
Luigi Bosca owns seven vineyards in the province of Mendoza, all based around Luján de Cuyo. Some of the grape varieties under cultivation date back to the late 1800s when they were first brought from Europe to Argentina. The Mendoza region is famed for its low humidity, clean mountain air, pure mountain water and cool breezes; perfect for the use of biodynamic cultivation techniques.
The Torrontés comes from their vineyard in Cafayate in Salta province, which lies at 1700m above sea level. The wine is fermented dry with lifted floral aromas of white peach and orange zest, balanced by crisp acidity and unlike some examples of Torrontés, it's not over sweetly perfumed, like some.
