Bodega Luigi Bosca

In 1890, Leoncio Arizu arrived in Argentina searching for new opportunities, and in 1901 he founded the Winery in the province of Mendoza. Then he and the Boscas, another old and prosperous family that had emigrated from the Piamonte region in Italy, decided to join efforts and founded what is todayBodega Luigi Bosca – Arizu Family.

After 114 years, Leoncio Arizu’s legacy is still in the hands of his grandchildren and great-grandchildren who honor the tradition of producing great wines.
The Arizu Family has played a leading role in major changes in the local wine producing industry. In 1989, the firm had an active participation in the foundation of the first Argentine C.D.O., the “Lujan de Cuyo” Controlled Denomination of Origin (C.D.O.). the PDO.

Continuous innovation, an unwavering work spirit, and a perpetual quest to achieve the ultimate expression of Argentine wine, have always been the Arizu Family distinctive mark, and have also driven the Winery to gain recognition for making wines with a style and personality of their own, that are the best expression of the terroir and the region’s style, culture and people.
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.

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 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.
