Debra Meiburg MW Meets the Winemaker 134: Alberto Arizu, Luigi Bosca
Debra chats with Alberto Arizu of Luigi Bosca winery, located in the Lujan de Cuyo area of Mendoza Valley, Argentina. They discuss the high altitude, microclimate and soil conditions of the region, along with the challenges of irrigation in Mendoza, which is essentially a desert. They go on to debate the “value for money” reputation of Argentinean wines, and why they are able to produce such affordable wines in relation to the rest of the world.
They discuss Alberto’s role with Wines of Argentina, the origins of the name of the winery, along with Alberto’s mum, who started her own winery nearby to Luigi Bosca.
