Natural Origins Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon
Natural Origins is the latest venture from husband and wife Labid al Ameri and Anne Bousquet. The entrepreneurial duo also owns and runs the Uco Valley winery and estate Domaine Bousquet, Argentina’s foremost exporter of wines made with organic fruit.
The Natural Origins Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon are South America’s first 3-liter box wines made exclusively from organically grown grapes.
Fruit for both of these wines comes from Domaine Bousquet’s estate vineyard located in Uco Valley’s Tupungato zone. The Uco Valley is the latest frontier in ultra-high altitude, cool-climate viticulture. It is nestled against the foothills of the Andes, and is about the size of the planted area of Sonoma County in California. Elevation ranges from 900-1,500 meters (2,950-4,900 feet) above sea level. Shallow loam soils are typical in the Tupungato.
Though no vintage is detailed on the box, each is from the 2019 harvest.
