About Us Borgovecchio
The Borgovecchio SA was founded in 1978 by Tano Crivelli, oenologist graduated in Lausanne, at the time the only school of oenology in Switzerland, with further studies in Geisenheim (Germany) and Conegliano Veneto (Italy) at the Department of the famous Professor Sudario.
From the very beginning we focused on retailers and wholesalers across the Alps, soon building our good reputation for the wide range of quality wines from almost any italian regions. Through the years the product offer has widen in order to meet the constantly changing customer needs. Today Borgovecchio supplies over three hundred restaurants with a range of about a thousand of quality wines in Ticino and all over Switzerland.
In 2010 a fruitful collaboration was established with Enrico Trapletti and Giuseppe Fumagalli for the management and growth of the Fumagalli Vinery, an historical presence in Balerna. From that date its wines from the magnificent vineyards of the Mendrisiotto enrich our product range.
Quality stands at the basis of every business decision. Awards are countless among the wines of the assortment, thanks to a rigorous selection process and strict choices. Each decision is taken after careful evaluation by qualified and trained staff, building an offer of wines capable to satisfy the needs of the most discerning palates.
Great attention is paid to the correct and reasonable prices thanks to careful costs management, functional infrastructure and a “no frills” style. Value-for-money is for Borgovecchio a key in all product groups, showing customers appreciation.
Similar importance is given to an ethical approach to wine and company policy. Borgovecchio resells biological products of tens of companies, wines and other products, and has long been certified IMO for this choice. We offer premium working conditions to employees, respecting and sometimes doing better than collective labour agreements.
Great attention is given to environmental aspects, with advanced projects in transport, energy efficiency and the choice of business partners, in the social, environmental and even economic fields. Sustainable business is our thread.
