A rich landowner of noble origins, a friar and a piece of land on which to build the first monastery in the area of Farra d’Isonzo … this is how the ancient legend that gave the estate its name came into existence. A more recent story begins in 1975 with the establishment of Borgo Conventi and with the promise to produce fine and elegant wines. A commitment, reasserted in 2001 when the estate was acquired by the Folonari family, which translated into a boost in production while maintaining utmost respect for the tradition and the origins.
The sediments left behind by the flooding of the River Isonzo enrich the soil of the fields along its course. And the vineyards of the Tenuta Borgo Conventi estate are nurtured by the mineral rich soil of the right bank of the river. Thanks to the varied microclimate of the area, in 1985 Borgo Conventi chose to plant vineyards of Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Friulano, Sauvignon, Refosco dal peduncolo rosso, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Varieties of grapes that yield young fresh wines that recall the scents of wild flowers.
