Bonzano Vini, located in Casale Monferrato (UNESCO World Heritage Site) is a family project filled with heart, soul and inspiration from the local area. The concept dates back to 2011 and only two years ago coming to fruition with oenologist - Donato Lanati. Eight wines have been produced so far, with respect for tradition, eco-sustainability and courage to break new boundaries.
