Born in 1984, Cristina graduated from the University of Gastronomic Sciences of Pollenzo and following various professional experiences in the hospitality sectors, today she has two main objectives: to cultivate the family land to the highest standards and to obtain a faithful production of Nocciola Piemonte I.G.P. delle Langhe in shell, which, together with wine and truffles, are one of the three “jewels” of the Langhe area.
In this place of affection and loyalty to tradition, Cristina Boffano has kept the promise she made to her grandfather: not to waste that history marked by work, tradition, patience and innovation.
The fulfilment of the dream of four generations now turned into reality and, for the first time, led by a female member of the family. Capable and persevering, Cristina has been able to hold hands with the past returning it to the future.
Under her guidance, Cascina Fontane has undergone a rapid growth that has turned it into a company ready to establish itself on the market: so much so that it has won five Winerhunter Gold Awards at the Merano Wine Festival 2021.
