Founded in 1761 by Bartolomeo Borgogno, the eponymous estate is one of the oldest wine producers of Langa and Piedmont, but also an essential reference for Italian wines. Barolo Borgogno is thus one of the wines served in 1861 at the official dinner celebrating the Italian unification.
In 1920, Cesare Borgogno developed the reputation of the family estate beyond European, Argentinian and American borders. A pioneer, he revolutionised the marketing of the estate's wines by marketing half of the production after 20 years of ageing in the estate's cellars.
The Farinetti family acquired the estate in 2008 and began major infrastructure restoration work in 2009. Andrea Farinetti has been at the head of the estate since 2010.
The vineyard of the Borgogno estate covers 30,8 hectares, 16 of which are planted to vines. Nebbiolo, Barbera, Dolcetto and Freisa make up the grape varieties of this terroir, and these grapes are planted in a soil composed of clay-limestone marl, contributing to the unique signature style of the estate's wines.
Producing wines in the appellations of Barolo and Langhe, Borgogno stands out for both the sustainable management of its vineyard (without the use of any chemical inputs) and for its immense respect for tradition. Today the estate offers lively and fresh wines, responsible for the sparkling international reputation of the domain.
