Leonardo Zito is a retired winemaker from Sicily that with the help of 3 sons (1 professional sommelier and 2 engineers) and their wives decided to make a good wine from a single vineyard to drink with the family. They soon realised that it was too good not to share! The result is BorgoLeo, the name coming from Borgo Bonsignore (the town where everything started) and Leo after the man himself.
