Raised among the vines in the Langhe region of Piedmont, 3rd generation winemaker Luca Bosio inherited “native intelligence” and natural ability for farming from his parents and grandparents. His talent for growing grapes was uncanny, so he did what any aspiring grape grower would do: he enrolled in the enology program at the famed University of Turin. That proved to be a fruitful endeavor as Luca gained valuable information on new technological advancements in the world of wine, like using native yeasts and how to make a viable wine with less sulfur inclusion and other chemical additives. His schooling was also the impetus that prompted him to theorize around the best ways to preserve aroma and structure.
Luca continued with his academics, eventually earning a master’s degree in enology, always finding new, innovative ways to make his family’s wine better.
The family’s winery, Bosio, was renamed to the Luca Bosio Vineyards. Under Luca’s purview, the vineyard holdings have increased to 1,000 acres in Piedmont and surrounding areas, including the purchase of the highly regarded Bel Colle Winery and vineyards, which has solidified Luca’s position as an outstanding maker of fine Piedmontese wine.
