Bozzovich is collection of special blends produced by Ocone. The captivating labels are a modern restyling of an original art-nouveau poster commissioned by the Ocone family to market their wines in the 1940’s. The wines are named to honor the artist, Bozzovich.
Ocone (“Oh-cone-eh”) is 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 bulk to the north. In the 1960s, his son Luigi helped Ocone distinguish itself from other producers by focusing on the region’s near forgotten indigenous varietals such as 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 Roberta Vergona, a local couple, who with their three children have restarted generational history at Ocone. Their goal is to continue the Ocone family’s legacy by producing wines in a fresh, clean style balanced by tradition. The Ocone wines are approachable, food friendly, and varietally true. They possess great depth of flavor without being excessive and are consistently balanced and structured with complexity and length.
