Borgogno is the most historical winery in Barolo, established in 1761. We are in the heart of the Langhe area, Unesco heritage.
An undiscussed protagonist in the history of the winery was Cesare Borgogno, who decided in 1920 to “forget” half of the Barolo Riserva production in the cellar and selling it almost 20 years later. The resut is a largest library of the greatest vintages of Barolo, and since this intuition, the most important Borgogno tradition began, getting rich over the time by three historical Cru in Barolo: Cannubi, Liste, Fossati, which are Barolo single-vineyards. Today the underground cellars represent a rare memory of the history of Langa and wines are made in full respect of tradition: long and spontaneous fermentations in concrete tanks avoiding the use of selected yeasts, long refining rigorously in oak casks.
We produce the wines of the Piedmontese tradition: Dolcetto, Barbera, Freisa, Nebbiolo, Barolo and Barolo Riserva. But also Laanghe Riesling. We cultivate our vineyards in Barolo, Madonna di Como and Colli Tortonesi, where the “white Barolo” was born in 2015: the Timorasso Derthona. In full respect of the earth: we don’t use chemical fertilizers, or herbicides, we apply sustainable farming treatments only. As from the harvest 2019, it is leading us through the official certification of organic agriculture.
Nowadays Borgogno is still the manifestation of a territory, a tradition and a history, always having a careful look to the future…
Some photos that represent Borgogno: from the vineyards to the fermentation process, then the the casks of oak for the aging of our wines.
Our passion for this territory and wine, for more than 250 years.
