The village of Barolo is located in the heart of the Langhe, the most prestigious wine-making area in Italy’s Piedmont region.
The Borgogno family lives and works right here in Barolo, managing their own “Virna” state.
First woman in Italy whit a degree in enology.
A descendant of one of the most famous Langhe families, Virna Borgogno is the first woman in Italy to complete a degree in oenology and oenological techniques. In 1988, she joined her father Lodovico in managing the cellar.
The Borgogno vineyards date from 1720, while the modern estate was founded in 1950 by Enrico Borgogno. Nowadays, Virna and her sister Ivana have taken the reins of the estate wholly in hand, with Ivana looking after the administrative and marketing side of the business. In 2001, the estate was rebranded with the new “Virna” logo to reflect the major role played by women in the business.
