Anne Bousquet, president and CEO, and Labid Ameri, chairman of the board, are the couple behind Domaine Bousquet in Argentina. For episode 128 of The Drinking Hour podcast, they join host David Kermode to talk about the winery’s beginnings and why the choice to make organic wines was the natural one ever since production started in the late ’90s. They discuss the move to become biodynamic, the importance of regenerative farming and the value of innovation at the winery. Bousquet gives her opinion on what makes Malbec and Mendoza such a special match, before the chat turns to the outlook for Argentina’s wine industry and the increasing significance of other grape varieties in the country, including Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.
