Description

The village of Barolo lies in the centre of the Langhe, the most prestigious wine-growing area in Piedmont. Though its history dates back to even older times, the village's name first appeared in a document of 1200. It is surrounded by the magnificent, vine-covered hills where the great wine named after it is grown: Barolo.

Lodovico Borgogno's family lives and works here in Barolo, on their "Borgognot" estate. The family have owned vineyards in Barolo since as long ago as 1720, and have always attached particular importance to the work carried out in the vineyards themselves and the selection of only the best grapes. The passion for these hills has also "contaminated" Lodovico's daughter, Virna, who today works alongside her father in every step of the production, with a sole objective: to constantly uphold and enhance the quality of Barolo and their other wines by highlighting their innermost nuances to reveal the multitude of secrets contained in this unique land.

The estate's wines are produced from grapes grown on its 8 hectares (20 acres) located in historic Barolo "crus": Cannubi Boschis, Preda, Sarmassa, I Merli, San Giovanni, and Costa delle rose. Dolcetto d'Alba, Barbera d'Alba and Nebbiolo d'Alba complete the range.

Tradition and technology come together in the winery under the watchful eye of Virna and her husband Gianni Abrigo, both wine-growers - i.e. specialized in both the growing of vines and the making of wines.

Together they also run a farm - Azienda Agricola Orlando Abrigo - in the village of Treiso, where Barbaresco, Langhe Chardonnay and a wooded Merlot are produced.

The entire process, from the growing of the grapes, through the wine-making procedures to the ageing in oak casks, are followed with scrupulous attention to detail in order to provide the clientele with an absolute certainty: genuine wines of outstanding value.
