“We are delighted to enhance our Argentine portfolio with such a respected bodega”, said Wildman CEO Richard Cacciato. “Wildman’s expertise and success in the Argentine wine business dates back to the early 90s when Argentina was barely a known category,” added Cacciato. “We are well positioned with the knowledge and dynamism to take on this property of impeccable heritage to greater success throughout the United States.”
Rocco Lombardo, COO of Frederick Wildman and Sons states, “Luigi Bosca has been present in some parts of United States for some years now, however, our expertise and partnership with our national distributors will allow us to extend this relationship and reach nationally.” Alberto Arizu, Bodega Luigi Bosca’s owner and a fourth-generation family member, added, “We are thrilled and excited about our collaboration with Frederick Wildman and Sons,” Arizu continued, “this is our number one market outside of Argentina, hence, very important to us on all levels.
