The Bordogna Family has a long and rich tradition of creating wines from grapes and traces their heritage back to the Romans! Over the centuries our wine making practices have been passed down through the generations, refined, updated, and now made available to the public. Although modern wine making techniques utilize pumps and filters to present a modern wine, the Bordogna wines follow family traditions by using gravity and old time siphoning to delicately move the wine from fermentation vessels to finished bottle. We believe these old time wine making techniques allow for today’s consumers to experience the rich original taste of wine the way the Romans and Greeks had so many centuries ago.
Since our grape musts and juices are moved around with gravity, the wine is exposed to the air throughout the whole processes, which makes it more approachable. You will not have to buy our wine and keep it for years to have it reach its optimum age. We age our whites for up to 12 months and are reds between 18- 24 months. When you buy our bottles of wine, you know it is ready to be consumed.
We only clarify our wine using the ancient practice of racking. This is siphoning off the clear wine in a vessel and leaving the sediment behind. We are not using microns filters; we believe this allows you to have a more flavorful experience when drinking our wines!
