Celebrate this year’s #EarthDay, which takes place on Saturday, 22nd April, with Domaine Bousquet’s Gaia Malbec
Domaine Bousquet vineyard, winery and the Andes in the background
Domaine Bousquet’s Gaia Malbec pays tribute to the Ancient Greek Earth Goddess, Gaia – who features on the label – and acknowledges the fundamental role the earth plays in winemaking.
Gaia has been an inspiration from the very beginnings of Domaine Bousquet, a winery which has been a pioneer of organic viticulture in Argentina since its inception and has been certified organic since 2001. Domaine Bousquet is a founder member of the UK-based Sustainable Wine Roundtable, and recently became the first winery outside of the US to earn Regenerative Organic Certified status - one of only four wineries world-wide to have this status. It was certified B Corp status at the end of 2022.
The grapes for Gaia Malbec are 100% estate grown and sourced from the high altitude Gualtallary Valley in Tupungato, a sub-region of Mendoza’s Uco Valley. The fruit is harvested by hand and the wine aged in French oak for 10 months.
Gaia Malbec 2020 is available via Waitrose at £16.99.
