Description

The Bousquet family have successfully made wine in the Carcassonne area of Southern France for four generations but in the late 1990’s they began a new venture here in the high altitude vineyards of the Uco Valley, Argentina. At 4000 feet, they own one of the highest altitude vineyards in Argentina and the world. Here the Bousquet family find they have ideal grape growing conditions and all their grapes are organically grown. Meticulous care is also taken in the winery ensuring that the natural flavours in the wine best express themselves. Domaine Bousquet are now one of the leading producers of Organic Argentinian wines. 14% ABV.
