Lujan De Cuyo, Mendoza, Argentina
Winemaker: Rodrigo Arizu

The Arizu family are pioneers in Mendoza and the sub region of Lujan de Cuyo producing wines under the Luigi Bosca label for over a century. In the late 80’s with iconic heritage vineyards, the oldest in the region, they saw the opportunity to create an ultra-premium boutique label with limited production of only the best fruit from their two iconic Mendoza vineyards.
The San Alberto and Viña Alicia vineyards are both located in Luján de Cuyo. The location, soil type and climate place these lands “among the most coveted in the world”. A true continental climate; dry, with an immense day/night (diurnal) temperature difference and the scarce rainfalls (180 mm, annual average) add up to the ideal conditions for vine growing.
