Founded in 1761, Borgogno is the oldest continuously operating winery in Barolo. Cesare Borgogno expanded the winery’s production in the 1920s and commercial success followed as he became one of the first winemakers from Piedmont to ship wines abroad.
In the 1960s, Franco Boschis took over as manager until the Farinetti family bought the estate in 2008. Under Andrea Farinetti’s leadership, organic conversion was initiated and the winery began using only cement vats for fermentation, a return to the original winemaking style. All the wines are made at the estate’s winemaking facility in Barolo village in an underground network of historic fermentation and aging rooms.
Made with long maceration times and minimal intervention, the wines are renowned for their traditional style and long-term aging potential, a favorite of Italian wine professionals and collectors.
Our Recommendation: Great to be paired with Poulty, Vitello tonnato, Raw meat. Fish, Soft Cheeses.
