In the very heart of Franciacorta, lies the centuries-old residence, its 16th-century winecellars and surrounding vineyards, all eloquent testimony to the age-old winemaking traditions that the Barboglio family inherited in 1836. That vocation grew and evolved, thanks to the efforts of Emanuela Barboglio, who planted the first specialised vineyards and adopted, in 1968, the newly-introduced Franciacorta DOC designation. In 1976, the Azienda Agricola Barzanò Barboglio became the current Mosnel, a term which in the local dialect refers to a pile of rocks, specifically the one on which rises the winery. Now at the winery’s helm is the fifth generation of winegrowers, Emanuela Barboglio’s children. Giulio Barzanò directs production and sales, while Lucia Barzanò oversees marketing, communication, and administration. The family can count on the support of a highly-professional staff, as well as experienced agronomy and winemaking consultants, all of whom meticulously supervise production and its constant development.
