Since 1908 Leoncio began managing the family farm. Very interesting is the fact that the winery got its name in honor of a family friend and winemaker - Luigi Bosca, not in honor of Leoncio Aris. The thing is that my brother Leoncio while already started another business, who gave his name, and the name of his mother - Ferrari did not fit because there were already known worldwide Ferrari cars, as well as Italian winery with exactly the same name. But despite this, the son Leoncio - Saturnino Aris later came up with a slogan that read: "our wine is as unique as Ferrari". But this philosophy has not been fully implemented, as Aris never added to the value of their fine wines as impressive margin for the brand. As well as the Italian engineers and designers improve their machines, the current director of Luigi Bosca - Alberto Ariza, believes that only forward movement makes a truly great winery. One of the main advantages of the company is the ability to combine tradition and innovation.
