Iolanda meet Serio Borgogno, at a young age, thanks to his brother Ferdinando. Serious, in fact, with the excuse to go find Iolanda's brother falls in love.
They marry and they go to live in the home of Serio at Barolo. From their union will be born the firstborn Anna and the second-born Paola Borgogno.
In addition to being a thoughtful and careful wife and mother, she has played an important and essential role in the cellar.
Every day She devoted herself to work on vineyards, packaging, sales and deliveries of her own wine.
All this has never distracted her from her role as mother and wife, becoming an important pillar of the family and cellar.
It's strange nowadays, imagine being able to find time to stop, lunch and dinner, all together, gathered around a table.

transmitting her values and the importance of being united.
For several years She has welcomed her employees, relatives, friends and clients into her home
by offering her delicious food Cooked with her hands, always offered with the smile.
