Lambrusco Maestri – Don Bosco

October 6, 2010 | in My Wine Story

According to the inhabitants of Rodeo del Medio, Maipú, it was only after the arrival of the Salesian priests a hundred years ago, that the Lambrusco Maestri grape variety started being grown in Mendoza. The first shoots were sent from Italy, together with the six bells that had been generously donated by the Italians to María Auxiliadora church, which was built in the year 1909. Eventually, Lambrusco Maestri adapted itself to the Mendocinian soil, yielding grapes for the production of Don Bosco’s emblematic, worldwide recognized and awarded wine, Lambrusco Maestri.
