Enclosed among beautiful vineyards and olive groves, Cantina Borgoluce is a design winery, the latest addition to the Borgoluce world, a brand that in Italy has become a solid reference in terms of sustainability as well as superb local production. The property, in fact, includes also two country houses with a swimming pool, the charming restaurant Osteria and the Frasca, a cool rustic eatery where the fresh products of the farm are served. Owned by the noble Collalto family, the company produces wine, cheeses and cured meats, honey, fine flours, walnuts, chestnuts and pomegranates, which can be purchased in the adjacent shop.
The architecture of the Winery is innovative, yet very protective of the natural landscape, with the production area built underground in order to protect the harmony of the building with the surrounding nature. The coup de théâtre is undoubtedly the panoramic tasting room on the ground floor with a stunning view of the hills and the two ancient Castles that dominates the area.
The Cellar menu includes buffalo roast-beef with ricotta flakes, soft egg with cheese fondue and porcini mushrooms, but also the very traditional bread with soppressa (traditional cured meat) or the delicious fried mozzarella cheese sandwich.
The original woods are conserved in almost half of the property, protecting their original appearance. All the twigs and foliage produced during the woods’ maintenance are recovered to power the wood chip boiler that heats the cellar. The materials that leftover after the massive excavation operation necessary for the construction of the underground production area were also reused to build roads and other infrastructures nearby.
