The Arizus take pride in a tradition that was born more than one hundred years ago; years in which the family worked toward improving their technique and the observation and understanding of nature, thus giving rise to their approach to wine-making. This is also where their commitment to improving vintage after vintage and to better understand those who choose their wines takes root. Luigi Bosca’s future is challenging and is always thinking ahead. Its present is focused on the combination of daily work with the creation of new ideas. This is Bodega Luigi Bosca, this is how the Arizu family was created and this is how their history begins everyday, because their past is always a prologue to their future. Read less

It's a very nice wine from one of the best Argentinian wineries. The combination of viognier, chardonnay and riesling is very good, although a little bit extra viognier would be nice.
