New York, NY, September 24, 2020 — Domaine Bousquet, Argentina’s largest exporter of wines made exclusively from organic fruit, has now expanded its Gaia range from two to six offerings. Named for the ancient Greek goddess of the earth, the four new Gaia wines comprise a Rosé 2020, Cabernet Sauvignon 2018, Cabernet Franc 2018, and a Malbec 2018. The four new wines join Domaine Bousquet’s existing Gaia Red Blend and Gaia White Blend. All six are estate-grown, made entirely from organically grown grapes, and line-priced at a competitive $20 per bottle. The new wines are available in major markets nationwide.
Domaine Bousquet’s Gaia line debuted in 2015 with a Malbec-based Red Blend, featuring smaller amounts of Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. A Gaia White Blend, comprising Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, and Sauvignon Blanc, followed a year later.
“Earth-friendly wines are no longer a luxury, but an imperative for many buyers. Factor in a growing awareness that our high-altitude Uco Valley terroir produces not just signature Malbec, but unbeatable price-value wines made from a growing range of classic grape varieties, and you have a winning combination.” – Co-owner, Labid Al Ameri
Gaia, the primordial earth goddess venerated by the ancient Greeks, has been a Bousquet family inspiration from the start, dating back to1997, when French-born vigneron Jean Bousquet bought and began clearing virgin land in the upper reaches of Tupungato’s Gualtallary, a subregion of Mendoza’s Uco Valley. From the get-go, Domaine Bousquet wines have been made exclusively from organically grown fruit. The winery released its first vintage in 2005 and today sells over 100,000 cases annually in the U.S. alone.
Eye-catching labels depict the goddess Gaia in a festive headdress of colorful fruits and flowers.
