Jose 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.


Like Crios, Bodini wines are produced under Dominio del Plata's code of sustainable agriculture. They avoid chemicals as much as possible and hand-pick their grapes. Drip irrigation is used instead of flood irrigation to manage the scarce supply of water from the Andes. Pruning debris is allowed to decompose between the vines which helps enrich the soil and prevent erosion.


Bodini stands for “Built On Dreams of Individuals Not Institutions”. Josés wine is built upon the dreams of all those involved in crafting these amazing wines. This corresponds with their attitude to social responsibility. They hire workers from the local area and support the local children’s soup kitchen and football club. 

Bodini

Mendoza, where these vines are grown, is Argentina’s foremost wine region, and it is responsible for the country’s best bottles. The province is located at around thirty degrees south of the equator. This is the northern limit of wine grape production, any closer to the equator and the grapes would shrivel in the heat. The Andes, that lie between Mendoza and Chile, raise the land to an altitude that counterbalances the equatorial heat. The result is that the vineyards of Mendoza are some of the highest in the world, between 600m and 1,100m above sea level
