Description

Domaine Bousquet Winery 

The Bousquet family originally from the city of Carcassonne, in the South of France, has 4 generations of history in the winemaking tradition.  In 1990, the Bousquet family arrived in Mendoza and discovered the region’s unique characteristics including the soil, altitude and terroir.

Their 110 hectares vineyard is located in the Gualtallary valley in Tupungato, Mendoza at an altitude of 1,200 m.a.s.l., with cool nights and a near constant breeze, has the idyllic conditions to produce ripe grapes and extraordinary wines.  Another unique characteristic of the quality of the water and the ability to control the watering regime, which allows producing grapes with a lower pH, wonderfully balanced wines with great colour.

The objective of the Bousquet family was to unite our tradition of European wine making with the ideal agricultural conditions in Mendoza. The result of this union are extraordinary wines that boast incredible color, delicious fruity character, good structure with ripe tannins and perfect acid balance. They are dedicated to farming organically while improving the land’s biodiversity, by nourishing the land and treating it with respect.
Domaine Bousquet’s young wines age gracefully and continue to receive accolades in the International Wine Press. They can be found in over 50 countries around the world.
