BORGOGNO

This name has always been linked to the best winemaking tradition of the Langhe and more generally of Piedmont. It all began in 1761 when Bartolomeo Borgogno founded the winery. In the following years the history of the company is often linked to that of Italy, as in 1861, the year in which the Unification is realized: the wine chosen to accompany the celebratory lunch of the unification is the Barolo di Borgogno, to underline the centrality that even then this important brand could boast. Over the decades the name Borgogno has represented, for all lovers of the best Barolos, the very synonym of its best tradition. The spontaneous fermentations, the very long macerations, the large barrels, that austerity and elegance that he was able to express year after year, have placed the Barolo di Borgogno constantly at the top of the appellation. 2008 marks another significant milestone in the history of the winery: the company is in fact taken over by Oscar Farinetti, the owner of Eataly, who today, respecting tradition, continues to retrace what has already been done throughout history.
