Olek Bondonio

WHO WE ARE

Olek Bondonio is a decorated Italian snowboarding champion who cashed in the thrill of conquering a snowy mountain for the thrills he now creates from the grapes grown on the hills of the Bondonio family estate – La Berchialla (pronounced La-BERK-ee-al-ah.) This estate has been in the family for more than 200 years and has always produced excellent grapes.  In fact, it was an ancestor of the Bondonio family from La Berchialla – General Guglielmo Como—who was instrumental in the founding of “Barbaresco’s Corporate Wine Cellar”, which today is the well-known communal producer “Produtorri del Barbaresco.”

 

The Bondonio estate is comprised of six hectares in Piemonte located in Roncagliette, Starderi and Altavilla.  A third of the family’s extremely desirable vineyards in Barbaresco are adjacent to the famous Gaja Sori Tilden estate.
