About Luca Bosio &
Tropical Moscato


The Langhe district of Italy’s Northeast Piedmont region is home to the picturesque Bosio Estates. Luca Bosio is the third generation of his family to tend to the gently sloping hillside vineyards purchased by his grandparents, Edigio and Angela, in 1967.

Raised among the vines, Luca inherited a “native intelligence” for farming and growing grapes from his parents and grandparents.  He expanded on his natural talents by studying Oenology at the prestigious University of Turin. Luca returned from his studies with an array of viticultural and enological innovations including; development of native yeasts, methods to decrease chemical additives, and theories on preserving the aroma and structure of wines from Moscato to Barolo.

Moscato is at the opposite end of the grape spectrum from other Italian wines.  It is a hearty grape with the most complex aromas of any Piedmont wine – intensely floral, followed by ripe fruits, including green apple, pear and pineapple, and some acacia honey on the finish. Luca Bosio Vineyards sits at the epicenter of Italian Moscato production in Santo Stefano Belbo. Luca has been making a Moscato d’Asti under the Luca Bosio label that has earned high praise for its fresh and lightly sweet taste, but to capture the hearts and tastebuds of today’s consumers and further improve perceptions of this native Italian grape, Luca knew he would have to invent something a little more radical.

Luca started experimenting with different fruit pulp infusions to complement the various aromas in his Moscato.   He settled on Passion Fruit and Mango, and named the new brand “Tropical.”   They are now the winery’s most popular wines in the US.  “Tropical has helped me raise awareness of Italian Moscato as the original – a natural, fruit-driven alternative to Moscato made in many other parts of the world,” Luca said.   Tropical now includes Passion Fruit, Mango, Grapefruit, Cranberry, Peach, Strawberry, Cranberry, and Blueberry.   In an effort to expand the wine’s audience, Luca has developed a number of signature cocktails featuring Tropical Moscato.
