Originally from Genoa, Italy, the Basso Family has been producing wine in Argentina since 1922. In 1935, after owning another winery, Adolfo Basso and his brother Tulio purchased the Santa Ana Winery, eventually turning it into one of Argentina’s largest bodegas.
In 1996, seeking to simplify their lives with small-production winemaking, the family sold the winery and used the profits to purchase and remodel a small winery in Carrodilla, Mendoza. Here, Bodega Amalia was born. Carlos Basso and his son Adolfo manage the day-to-day operation. Of their three labels, Carlos Basso Signature is their premium line, offering small quantities of high-quality wine, which is among the best in Argentina.
