Bozzovich is a special collection of blends created by Ocone("Oh-cone-eh"), a small, family winery situated in the Campania region, outside of Naples, on the rocky foothills of Mount Taburno. Guiseppe Ocone founded the winery in 1910 and began bottling his own wines at a time when most Campania wineries simply sold to the bulk to the north. In the 1960's, his son Luigi helped Ocone distinguish itself from other producers by focusing on the region's near forgotten indigenous varietals such an Aglianico, Greco, and Falanghina. Dedication to organic cultivation of these ancient varietals established Ocone as a world class estate. In 2017, Domenico Ocone sold the winery to Giorgio and Robert Vergona, a local couple, who with their three children have restarted generational history at Ocone. The Bozzovich colleciton is a living symbol of their mission to celebrate Ocone's legacy and engage a new generation of wine drinkers by producing authentic wines highlighted by striking packaging. The capitvating label is a modern restyling of an origin art-noveau poster commissioned by the Ocone family to market their wines in the 1940's. The wines are named to honor the artist, Bozzovich.
