The company was born thanks to Aldo the Grandfather and Lena the Grandmother who continued to believe in the strength of agriculture despite the difficult times called ‘malora’. Therefore, in 1968, they decided to invest all their money in a small farmhouse in San Rocco Seno d’Elvio, 5 km away from the centre of Alba. In 1994 their sons Marco and Vittorio started the current winery with their first production of Barbaresco Adriano Marco and Vittorio. Now the company leads 50 hectares split into 30 hectares of vineyards, 10 of hazelnuts trees and 10 of woods; the latter 10 hectares are very important for the biodiversity preservation process of the area because they follow an eco- sustainable and careful production philosophy. The wines you will taste are the reflection of the territory and the tradition from which they come from.
“Born by mistake in Italy” on 8 May 1978, half Italian and half Dutch, Eugenio Boer grew up in the Netherlands, in Voorburg, until the age of 7, when his family moved to Italy, in Sestri Levante (GE), to follow his father, then a commercial agent. He continued his training with Gaetano Trovato at Arnolfo in Colle Val d’Elsa (SI), where he learned what a great restaurant is, making the concept of intensity of flavour combined with extreme elegance his own. Next he arrived at La Leggenda dei Frati, in Monteriggioni and stayed in the province of Siena for four years.
He then pursued his discovery of Italian regions with a strong gastronomic tradition until, in 2011, he moved to Alto Adige, at St. Hubertus, with Norbert Niederkofler. He thus arrived in Milan, where he embarked on a pioneering project focused on natural wine: Enocratia. A lucky meeting with Stefano Saturnino then led him to open Fishbar de Milan, an innovative concept that made him embrace a smarter, younger and more affordable world of catering. After a year, he was involved in some consultancy work and, in December 2014, he opened Essenza, which led him to his first Michelin Star in November 2017. In June 2018 he opens his own restaurant in Milan [bu:r], whose sign dispels any doubts about the pronunciation of the Chef’s surname.
The appointment is part of the project
