Domaine Bousquet, a leading Argentinian producer of organic wines, has spruced up its bubbly packaging and listed their certifications on the back labels.
All four wines are certified vegan (Veg Argentina), sustainable (Bodegas de Argentina), made with respect for human and environmental rights (Fair for Life) and organic (Ecocert), the company says.
“Certification ensures that every bottle is 100% organic and responsibly made,” says Domaine Bousquet Co-owner, Anne Bousquet. “Once certified, there’s no wiggle room for reverting to pesticides in the event of rot or mildew during a problematic vintage.”
The new packaging creates a clearer distinction between Domaine Bousquet’s sparkling and still wine offerings. The labels now “read” more as sparkling wine labels, while pointing up their organic nature with drawings of leaves and fruit.
Domaine Bousquet’s commitment to organic farming at has been in place from the get-go. It started with the first plantings in the early 2000s and release of the first vintage in 2005.
Bottles sporting the new packaging enter national distribution starting in August.
All four sparkling wines are multi-vintage chardonnay-pinot noir blends from cool-climate fruit grown at around 4,000 feet in the Gualtallary subzone of Mendoza. Chardonnay dominates 75/25 in whites. The reverse is true for the pinot noir-dominant, food-friendly rosés.
Imported by Origins Organic in Miami, FL, Domaine Bousquet is available nationwide.
Domaine Bousquet Charmat-method Sparkling Brut and Brut Rosé both retail for a suggested price of $13 per 750-ml. bottle. Domaine Bousquet Traditional Method Brut and Brut Rosé retail for $18.
