The sisters Paola, Anna, Elena Conti are more and more convinced that producing the Boca DOC, a long ageing wine, could be compared to the creation of a work of art which can reflect daily life, full of passion, authenticity and simplicity.

Wine, as a cultural value through which it is possible to extend the traditional concept of enological tasting to an experience to be lived on many levels: sensory, intellectual, evocative, emotional and artistic.

Following this idea "il rosso delle donne" (women’s red) was born, at the beginning only with a new aesthetic image with the creation of the artistic label by Oreste Sabadini for the Boca Doc vintage 1996 and 1997. Soon after followed by a large breathing cultural project, into which develop creativity, research and experiment, creating events that include contemporary art exhibitions , art workshops, books presentation, poetry reading and theatre pieces.

"Il rosso delle donne" is an open project where collective and individual resources can be valued with the aim to create new and creative cooperations, in a land with great cultural, natural-environmental, gastronomic and touristic potentials.
