I vini di Borgo delle Rose

Borgo delle RoseQuality: a value deeply-rooted in the love for our land.

On a unique territory distinguished by the stony, well-drained soil of the “Magredi” area – which means steppe in the Friulian language – that requires tenacity as well as passion to become productive, Ivana Cimolai – the second born of Armando and Albina Cimolai , founders of Cimolai S.p.A. and of the homonymous industrial group – decided in 1993 to transform her love for the land and for its fruits into a winery.

Our winesBorgo delle Rose’s wines: know-how dedicated to flavours.

Working in harmony with tradition while enriching it with inspirations from the present; that’s what Borgo delle Rose has chosen to do. And you can taste this in its wines, the offspring of vineyards that thrive in the Friulian steppe, and appreciate their ability to be paired with many foods, sometimes opening up to particularly original combinations.
