Bodegas Bianchi Wine Estate | Mendoza, Argentina | Football
The Wine: Born in Fasano, Italy, in 1887, Don Valentín emigrated with his family to Argentina in 1910. In 1928 he bought a small vineyard and gave birth to Bodegas Valentin Bianchi. As part of the legacy, they seek to keep alive the passion for wine and constantly exploring new horizons. Their guiding principles in wine making are to respect nature and the best viticultural and oenological practices.
We aim to create unique wines, where the fruits prevail and reflect the distinctive features of their specific terroir.

Sporting Connection: Lionel Messi is arguably the best known football player in the world and regarded by many as one of the most skilful of all time. In his career he has won a record five Ballon d’Or awards, four of which he won consecutively, and a record five European Golden Shoes. Former Captain of Argentina and veteran of Barcelona FC, he has very little left to achieve in the world of football.
The Winemaker Says
Bodegas Bianchi and the Lio Messi Foundation are very excited to team up with Sporting Wine Club and introduce the L10 brand to the UK market. Together, we share a passion for helping others and the donation from Sporting Wine Club will contribute to improving the health and education of children with social disadvantages. We look forward to a long partnership to bring more joy and opportunities to many more children throughout the world.
