Roero

Borgogno Rivata

Cellar in Guarene

young winery, based on the production of quality wines without the limits of tradition.

Development and innovation converge in the bottle to give life to new wines, with the help of lands that are historically suited to the production of wine.

It practices low environmental impact agriculture through grassing andintegrated pest management, in order to avoid the use of herbicides and fungicides.

Visits

The visit begins with a stroll in the fields, in the vineyards and adjacent orchards, half way up the coast of the Guarene hill, under the grandeur of its castle.

Here it is possible to observe a quite curious geological formation called Paradis der Some (Paradise of jennies). This is a rift that cuts through the entire height of the hill, formed by the Tanaro river at the end of the last glaciation.

During the walk, depending on the seasonal period you’ll see the work that is carried out.

At the end you will visit the entire firm, warehouses and shelter tools, the tractors and their trailers.

The winemaking area, and the aging cellar, are mostly concentrated in the winery of La Morra. However, we will explain you how the wine is produced.

The tour ends with the tasting of Langhero wines, accompanied by delicious snacks and by the tasting of the first and only Madernassa pear cider: the Sidré.

The production

Most of the property is distributed near the company in the locality of Sotteri in Guarene and, together with the vineyards of La Morra, extends for about forty hectares.

The lands are cultivated with vineyards (5 hectares), cereals, corn and wheat (30 hectares), orchards of apples, pears, apricots, peaches, plums and hazelnuts (5 hectares), to which is added a hectare dedicated to horticulture.

The wines produced are Barolo (soon available in 2019), NebbioloDolcetto and Barbera for the reds, together with Favorita and Arneis for whites.

The Sidré cider

From the crushing and pressing of the Madernassa pear, a typical Roero variety, we obtain the juice for the initial fermentation at 14°, which lasts roughly 15/20 days.

The bubbly process takes place during the second fermentation which is carried out at 12°, after which filtering and a period of rest in tanks take place.

At this point the Sidré cider is ready to be bottled: dry, bubbly and with low alcohol (Vol. 8%). It’s ideal for any situation; for all dishes and light aperitifs.

The History

In 2010, the companies of Alberto and Massimo merge: in both families there is a strong link with wine, but the two young men believe that a new interpretation is needed.

Getting to know the French phenomenon of the 1990s, the so-called “garage wine” of the Bordeaux area, they start asking themselves: why compete with the “Barolisti”?

Their dream is a small production representative of the territory of Langhe and Roero, but free from the limiting dictates of tradition.

This is how the Borgogno Rivata winery comes to life: a young and fresh company founded on experimentation and development.
