A 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 and integrated pest management, in order to avoid the use of herbicides and fungicides.
A story that
begins in 2010
in La Morra
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.
The property extends for about forty hectares.
Most of the property is distributed near the company in the locality of Sotteri in Guarene, while the rest of the vineyards are in La Morra.
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, Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Barbera for the reds, together with Favorita and Arneis for whites.
Langhe Nebbiolo DOC
Dolcetto d'Alba DOC
Barbera d'Alba DOC
Roero Arneis DOCG
N° of Bottles
Sidré is the first Madernassa pear 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 visit begins among the rows of vines to learn about the vegetative stages, the work carried out and what still needs to be done to produce an excellent wine.
2. Reconnaissance in the garage cellar
Once in the cellar, a modern, industrial-style environment awaits you, with murals and graffiti on the walls.
You will be shown the rooms dedicated to winemaking, refining and storage of wines.
