About today’s guest:
The Buglioni family are grape farmers the Valpolicella’s – started in the early 90s out of the courage and foresight of Alfredo Buglioni and later his son Mariano who chose to devote himself to winemaking and becoming one of the most important producers in the Valpolicella.
Starting from their first 3.5 hectares of vineyard purchased with the house where the family still lives today, the two “Teste Dure” grow their own grapes on 50 hectares of vineyards in the Valpolicella Classica and 5 hectares in Lugana, these have been organically run since 2019.
A strong passion leads Alfredo and Mariano Buglioni to produce distinctive and elegant wines with native Valpolicella grapes alongside some more unusual and almost forgotten ones to highlight the authentic character of the territory.

These wines express an individuality also sold in 5 experience places in Verona and Valpolicella, where different cuisines enhance each label. You can try typical “cicchetti” in Osteria del Bugiardo, grilled meat in Locanda Buglioni or at Ciccia Bistrot and seafood in Piscaria. Buglioni has also designed spaces to enjoy a relaxing break among his vineyards and olive trees in the Dimora or visitors can stay within the city of Verona at one of their apartments.
