In a location eloquently symbolic of Barolo, right at the interface between Barolo’s historic Cannubi hill and La Morra’s Brunate, born this winery of Barolo, founded in the early 1930s.
The emotional attachment to this land and to these vineyards has been handed down from father to son for three generations.
Today, Francesco Borgogno’s sons, Giancarlo and Claudio, direct the winery flanked by Claudio’s wife Silvia, checking every step in the production of their wine starting with the vineyards and following with the winemaking and the care of the cellar.
The winery is a small family-run business that makes wine exclusively using grapes from our vineyards which are located in one of the best positions in La Morra: the Brunate cru.
With over 80 years of experience and firm roots in wine-making traditions, the Borgogno family works hard to achieve high quality wines while fully respecting the environment.
The main product and symbol of the territory is the Barolo Brunate; a wine that undergoes slow fermentation on the skins and ages 3 years in large Slavonian oak barrels.
Our other reds wines are: Langhe Nebbiolo - a fresh, young, fruity and velvety wine; Dolcetto and Barbera d'Alba, perhaps the most Piedmont-related wines of all. The first is subject to a quick fermentation so as to maintain a great freshness, while the second, which comes from a very old vineyard, is a strong wine, colored and velvety.
Finally, the Borgogno family produces a small amount of a white wine: the Langhe Favorita.
Visit to the winery
The visit to the company is led by the Borgogno family members in person, because there is no better way to learn about wine than listening to the stories of those who actually produce it.
It begins with a visit to the winemaking and aging rooms, where you’ll discover the traditional production process of the great Langa wines.
At the end of the visit you’ll be guided throughout the wine tasting session, at which point you’ll get to know Francesco Borgogno in person.
