Collection: Joes Lovaglio

If you’re seeking a symbol of progressive and conscientious winemaking in the New World, look no further than those of the Bodini Winery. José Lovaglio is a young, third generation winemaker who is applying sustainable practices to his winemaking in a region where there is great pressure to produce industrially.

At the age of 18 he enrolled at University of California at Davis and, in 2008, he graduated with a degree in oenology. After college, he moved to China where he continued his wine education at Beijing Normal University. While in China, José worked for ASC Fine Wines, China’s largest distributor of fine wines. Today, José has taken over the Bodini label from his mother; one of world’s most recognized and well-known female oenologists, Susana Balbo of Crios Wines.
