- Other info: For decades, the Arizu family has made its wines under the name of Luigi Bosca. The subterranean tunnels which once carried water to the family's farm have been enlarged and are filled with oak barrels, fermentation tanks, and all the equipment required by one of Mendoza's largest wineries. Over the years the Arizu family has become one of Argentina's most famous winemaking dynasties. Still 100% family owned and operated by the Arizus, Luigi Bosca remains one of Mendoza's most important wine producers. The winery makes numerous wines under several related labels. The Reserva line includes wines that see more barrel and bottle aging than the La Linda line, including the family's DOC labeled Malbec. The Gala range are their top cuvees and are stunningly complex wines.
