The ‘Serio e Battista Borgogno’ winery is a great example of the evolution of these lands, which have been capable of transforming their peasant like nature into an asset of the utmost value.
Like many others in the Langhe area, the Borgogno family have a long dynasty of farmers and wine producers behind them, as well as historic vineyards, whose value today has significantly increased compared to their original price.
What distinguishes this company from others is the ability to preserve that particularly genuine soul, full of love for the land, and the ability to grow with it. Here, after over 120 years of wine production in one of the finest Barolo crus, the Borgogno family sees their fifth generation of exclusive family management, a warm and friendly welcoming environment and a passionate production, in which every member of the family collaborates as best they can.
Furthermore, for two generations now, an all-female management has been chosen: Anna and Paola Borgogno initially, and currently Federica Boffa and Emanuela Bolla.
One shared objective: to enhance and safeguard the authenticity of the vintage and of the individual vineyards, with the maximum respect for the terroir and biodiversity.
A consolidated team, the support of a family where everyone puts their skills on the line
In the vineyard, as in the winery, the memory of Serio & Battista Borgogno survives. They managed to transmit their love for this profession to their children, grandchildren and so on.
The production is now supervised by Marco Bolla and his daughter Emanuela, who personally lead each processing phase with the precious help of the team, now an integral part of the family.
As this is the Cannubi cru, one of the most renowned for the production of Barolo, it is not surprising that the company pays particular attention to the health of its vines and their uniqueness: the objective is, in fact, to accompany the development of the grapes by altering them as little as possible.
In order to do this, they only use natural copper and sulfur based products; they apply grassing and exclude herbicides, pesticides and chemical fertilizers.
Even in the cellar, efforts are made to minimize any influence on the final product: this is attributed to the choice of using only large barrels, excluding barriques.
