The small Bressia boutique winery
Bressia is a very small and boutique winery in the Lujan de Cuyo region, but the most important thing for us is the family. Bressia is the last name of the owners of this project. All the members of it are working in here: Walter Bressia (Father. Director, President and First Winemaker), Marita Bressia, Walter Bressia Junior, Alvaro Bressia, Antonella Bressia and Matías Dellacasa. Bressia makes wines that have history and tradition, every wine range has its own name and represent a big part of Walter’s heart. They work for quality and not quantity and make around 240,000 bottles only.
Minimum intervention and top technology at the winery
The project aims at making limited batches of wine and grappa of top quality. Every bottle made by them is unique, and customers can relish the qualities of each vintage. The concept of minimal human intervention is practised to keep the grapes and wine as natural as possible. These techniques are supported by the best equipment and machinery. Chenin and Malbec are the grapes used by the winery to make red, white, rose, and sparkling wines.
Ageing in French oak barrels
The best grapes are chosen and taken to the winery for further vinification. They have French and American oak barrels to make wines with a hands-on approach and impart an oak flavour to the wines. The ageing takes place in a subterranean cellar which is almost six feet below the ground and has almost 500 oak barrels. Apart from wines, the Grappa expresses their Italian roots.
