Established in 1901 by Leoncio Arizu, Bodega Luigi Bosca has more than a hundred years’ experience in the local winemaking industry. Currently managed by the third and fourth generations of the Arizu Family, it is one of the few local winemaking firms still owned by its founders’ descendants, that owing to its reputation has become the paradigm of Argentine wine.
The Arizu Family has consistently worked to achieve the ultimate expression of Argentine wine, while leading major changes in the local winemaking industry. The four major pillars on which it has consolidated its credentials are the global expansion, a prestige based on the expertise gained and transferred over the years, the sustained and homogeneous quality of its wines, and the perpetual quest for excellence through innovation and state-of-the-art technology.
By the end of the XXth. century, when Argentine wine was mostly bound to local consumption, Bodega Luigi Bosca paved the way for the expansion to global markets. The working spirit of the family led it to be present in fifty countries across five continents. The firm currently exports most of its production, while maintaining its leadership in the premium segment of the local market. In addition, it is part of different organizations and entities that promote the high quality of national wines. The passion of four generations of one family is reflected in Bodega Luigi Bosca’s collection, that is the result of their ambitious efforts started many years ago: to convey the ultimate expression of the essence of Argentine wine.
