The site of Alejandro Bulgheroni Estate was first planted by to grapes by Jim and Nina Talcott in 1975. Under their ownership a charming stone winery was built to vinify the property’s grapes. After its acquisition Alejandro Bulgheroni began an extensive renovation and enhancement project to pgrade the old stone winery, plant new vineyard blocks, transform the tasting salon and re-invision the future of the property. The winery renovations provided upgraded infrastructure to new equipment dedicated solely to the vinification of Alejandro Bulgheroni Estate wines. The new tasting salon is available exclusively to members of the Estate’s allocation list and offers educational tastings.
