The vineyards:

Thanks to the mixture of flora and fauna, the woods represent an important basis of oxygen and balance necessary for eco-friendly viticulture.  Every vineyard has its own particular characteristics in terms of exposure, altitude and soil composition. Each one occupies an optimal position and is between 35 and 65 years old.

New generation: 

Borgo Maragliano is a cellar that is looking to the future, through the eyes of the new generation, represented by Carlo and Silvia’s sons: Giovanni, Francesco and Federico.
