The project – Az. Agricola Borgese
A few years ago Massimo Borgese, an expert enterpreneur and farmer, bought a small property, vineyards and olive groves, but also an old shed, warehouses and farms, near Montefalco, in Umbria, in a fantastic location, a natural terrace facing the Valle Umbra, in view of Assisi. Here Massimo, after a careful and respectful restoration of the buildings, moved with his family and started producing wine and olive oil of high quality with honesty, seriousness and passion. In the conduct of the farm and winery special attention is paid to the environment. In the vineyards integrated production methods and organic fertilizers are used. Recovery of rainwater is implemented. The farm also has a photovoltaic system that makes it completely self-sufficient from an energy point of view.

COMMERCIAL POINT OF VIEW
The flagship product of this winery is Sagrantino di Montefalco. The question, from a commercial point of view, it’s how to propose, especially in a depressed economy, a wine belonging to a niche category and which traditionally belongs, in terms of price, to a medium-high level. Massimo Borgese offers wines of great quality in a beautiful packaging. His products show a great ratio between quality and price. He believes in a gradual, steady growth supported by the producer in cooperation with the importer. Massimo Borgese , along with Sagrantino, proposes a range of quality wines, typical of the area, that enriches his offer and helps the logistics of the composition of orders.
