Bousquet Winery, in the heart of Mendoza
Perched in the Gualtallary Valley, Bousquet Winery is based in Tupungato, a charming district of Uco Valley in Mendoza. The winery focuses on the production of superior quality wines in their desirable soils, a perfect location to deliver supreme organic wines.
Today, the winemaking family of Bousquet Winery uses a perfect blend of French techniques and Argentina’s viticulture methods on their land.
Close to the Border of Chile
The story of Bousquet Winery begins in 1990 when a French family was touring through Argentina. For Jean Bousquet, the founder of the Bousquet Winery, Argentina’s environment and natural terroir were love at first sight. He purchased land in the Mendoza territory, close to the Chilean border and started cultivating grapes. In later years, his daughter Anne and son-in-law Labid Al Ameri begun investing in the winery themselves.
A Family Business at Bousquet Winery
In 2009, the couple fully dedicated themselves to the winemaking business and acquired the estate. They have made many changes in the cellar – added new fermentation tanks, equipped with temperature control devices and new oak barrels of various sizes. Currently, they are the fourth generation exporting high-quality red, white, and rosé wines, along with sparkling and dessert wines to over 50 countries around the world.
With complete respect for Mother Nature, the Bousquet Family cultivates 240 hectares of land with an extensive range of organic grapes. Their wines are cultivated from top-quality Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Torrontés, and Pinot Gris, combined with fruity Pinot Noir, Merlot, Syrah, and Malbec. Taking advantage of the fertile soil of Mendoza, the owner as well grows excellent Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. The staff of Bousquet Winery picks all grapes by hand and gathers the best bunches in small trays to preserve quality.
