The story of the Francesco Boschis winery began in 1919 when Telesforo Boschis left the vineyards of Barolo to settle in the hills of the municipality of Pianezzo in the Langhe. It was in this village that their son Francesco, who would later develop the domaine, was born. Although the family has been growing grapes since they settled in Pianezzo it was not until 1968 that Mario Francesco and his son decided to vinify part of their harvest. Since the results were encouraging they kept at it, slowly perfecting their techniques. They started acquiring other parcels, such as Vigna dei Prey in 1983, Sorì San Martino in 1986, and ultimately Vigna del Ciliegio in 2001. Today, the wines are vinified separately to show the characteristics of each vineyard. The vineyards, with respect, fields and the surrounding forests are laboured and treated with respect. The manure used to fertilize the vineyard comes from a local farm creating a self-sufficient and balanced ecosystem. The majority of the vineyards at Francesco Boschis are planted with Dolcetto (80%), but they also grow some Barbera, Freisa, Grignolino and Sauvignon Blanc.
The Boschis family strongly believes in environmentally sustainable agriculture and rigorous vineyard management and production. They proceed with a green harvest to keep only the best bunches and another selection at the time of harvest to preserve only the fully ripened and healthiest grapes. Yields are low, but fruit quality is undeniable and is reflected in the quality of their wines. The winery adheres to the strict Eco-Compatible Agriculture Rules of the European Union program.
