Domaine Bousquet has added a Chardonnay to its range of organic wines in the US.

Virgen Organic Chardonnay 2021 is available now in selected off-premise outlets across the US as well as in unspecified major global markets. The new varietal is the first organic white wine produced by the Argentinian company to be approved by the US Department of Agriculture.

Import duties will be handled by Miami-based Origins Organic Imports.

“Making USDA-certified organic wines presents its own set of challenges,” said Domaine Bousquet’s CEO, Anne Bousquet. “Those are amplified when it comes to a USDA-certified white wine able to withstand the rigors of shipping and deliver the quality buyers and consumers have come to expect from Domaine Bousquet.”

The varietal joins joining the existing trio of reds, Virgen Red Blend, Virgen Cabernet Sauvignon, and Virgen Malbec, in the wine company’s organic portfolio.

Earlier this week, Wines That Rock added two new varietals to its Star Trek-themed series in the US.
