The name Borgo Conventi, which translates to "hamlet convent", was inspired by a legend and a plot of land in the ancient hamlet of Farra d'Isonzo, located in Italy's Friuli-Venezia Giulia region. In the 17th Century, a noble landowner, Count Strassoldo, donated the land to a friar named Basilio Pica, on which the province's first monastery was built. Established in 1975, Borgo Conventi took its name from this legendary land in Farra d'Isonzo and was founded on the promise to produce elegant wines which respect the land and the province's history. Today, Giancarlo Polegato and his family remain committed to that promise.
