One of the oldest wine producers in Piedmont, Borgogno is best known for having its Barolo chosen as the wine in 1861 to commemorate the founding of the kingdom of Italy (that year also marked Borgogno’s 100th year anniversary, an entire century after Bartolomeo Borgogno established his family cantina).
