The Bousquet Family, who hail from the southern French city of Carcassonne, has a long history and prestigious wine making tradition. In the constant struggle to produce wines of a superior quality, Mr. Jean Bousquet was determined to find the best place to continue the family’s decades-long tradition. In 1998, after buying a parcel of land, he moved from France to the foothills of The Andes. The vineyard is located in Tupungato, Uco Valley, Mendoza at an altitude of 1200 meters (4,000 feet) above the sea level. The main objective of Domaine Bousquet is to combine the European Elegance in winemaking style with the prefect cool climate and terroir of the Uco Valley in Argentina. Dedicated to farming organically while improving our land’s biodiversity; organic vine roots penetrate deep through the soil, where they absorb trace minerals that help to give wines their authentic regional taste.  For this reason, organically grown grapes can express the purity and intensity of the varietal character and the terroir where it comes from.

Fine cuisine goes hand in hand with fine wines. This activity was specifically designed for visitors who are looking to enjoy, and learn, the secrets of Argentine food and wine. With the help of bilingual chef, visitors will learn how to use regional products to cook traditional Argentinean dishes, such as empanadas.
