Looking Without to Change Within

Pio Boffa sought advice from Bordeaux consultant Denis Dubourdieu to make changes at Barolo star Pio Cesare in the Langhe

Posted: January 7, 2013  By Bruce Sanderson

This past November, I attended the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts 14th Bacchanal Wine Gala and Auction, which raises money for art student scholarships. Each year, PAFA honors members of the wine industry. Last year, one of the honorees was Pio Boffa, the affable owner of Pio Cesare in Italy's Piedmont region. I sat down with Boffa to discuss some changes he made in the vineyards and cellar at the company his great grandfather founded in Alba in 1881.

Boffa began working with Bordeaux consultant Denis Dubourdieu after the two were introduced by Pio Cesare importer Maison, Marques & Domaines in 2010.
