The Valtellina is made up of 40 Km of terraced vineyards. 2400 km of dry stone walls, running along the Rhaetian of the Central Alps. The center of this prestigious viticulture is Chiuro, home to the cellars of Balgera. Since 1885 the wineries founder Peter Balgera, traded the wines of Valtellina in neighboring Switzerland. He was succeeded by Leo Balgera, which continued production and export. The son Gianfranco built new cellars evolving and improving production techniques, aging and bottling. Today Paolo Balgera the fourth generation is flanked by his sons Luca and Matteo. They still operate together using traditional techniques and the ”ancient know how to make wine“ while continuing to their improve their wine winemaking techniques and the modernization of the winery and cellars.
