We are excited to welcome Ricardo March Vice President for Beni di Batasiolo Winery in Piemonte. Ricardo will be presenting five wines so be sure to come by to taste and learn about the great wines of Batasiolo. Beni di Batasiolo is the story of the Dogliani family. The family has lived the world of wine for five generations in Italy’s Langhe district. In 1978, the Dogliani family purchased the historic Kiola winery with its seven “beni,” or “estate,” in the internationally renowned zone for growing the celebrated Nebbiolo da Barolo grape. Ricardo will be bringing a special bottle of Batasiolo Single Vineyard Barolo to taste.
The Dogliani family has lived in Italy’s Langhe district in Piedmont for three generations. As the largest family-owned wine producer in the region, Batasiolo works with the land and allows nature to ensure their wine’s quality comes first.
Batasiolo’s wines prosper across nine beni – or ostates – in Piedmont, including five Cru vineyards that produce the most highly prized Barcios. Today Batasiolo is run by the second generation Fiorenzo Dogliani, who got his start in the wine business with his brothers and sisters in 1962. Over his 30+ years as Batasioloo’s Managing Director, Florenzo has extended the estate to encompass more than 320 acres of vineyards.
