Founded in 1975, Borgo Conventi was named after an ancient legend on Farra d’Isonzo: historical documents state that Count Strassoldo, a landowner know as “The Rizzardo”, has donated a pice of land to a monk named Basilio Pica. On this land, in the province of Farra d’Isonzo, the Dominican fathers have built the firs of a series of monasteries, from which derives the name “Borgo Conventi”.
Since the beginning, the property was listed among the best avant-garde winemaker in Friuli, which focused its production efforts paying particular attention and taking special care of the vineyards both of traditional white grapes and red grapes alongside of allochthonous vineyards, which are more appropriate for the kind of soil.
At the beginning, the production was humble, only a few hectars of vineyards of Chardonnay e Friulano, planted near the Villa of the estate. The initial production was limited to approximately 10000 bottles. However, after thirty years the property grew, adding vineyards and creating tha basis for a prestigious production of red and white wines.
An important chapter in the history of Borgo Conventi, occured in the 2001 when the wellknown Tuscan winemarker Ruffino bought the property. The wine experience of hundreds of years, and the best quality of Ruffino, gave additional vitality and energy to Borgo Conventi.
Today,the Borgo Conventi vineyardscover over 40 hectars of land, divided between two of the most important DOC regions: Collio and Isonzo. The annual production has exceeded three hundred thousand bottles with Collio DOC, Isonzo DOC and Venezia Giulia IGT.
