Silvia Barbaglia joined the family business back in 1999, when her dad Sergio decided to renovate their winery in Cavallirio, which is located right in the heart of the Alto Piemonte Boca designation. Silvia is the third generation of her family to make wine and she is firmly committed to continuing the family mission to produce pure and expressive terroir wines working exclusively with the native grapes of the area.
