About Cascina Bongiovanni
Azienda Agricola Bongiovanni is a family-run company founded in 1950 by Giovanni Bongiovanni, grandfather of the current owner, Davide Mozzone. In 1950, when Nebbiolo was planted it struck gold, yet at that time the wines were sold to other wineries. Today, the vineyard management and winery technology is avant-garde, albeit respectful of tradition and terroir. The Bongiovanni philosophy aims at minimizing outside intervention and maximizing character and goût du terroir, steering clear of stereotyped wines. Hugely concentrated, luscious, muscly and full-bodied reds have reaped unanimous accolades.
Bongiovanni is a sustainable winery.
