Burson is a native grape variety that carries with it the soul of Romagna: people and their traditions, dialogue and dialect, doing and hospitality. The name derives from the nickname given to the Longanesi family who in the fifties had the merit of believing in the potential of these grapes and saving them from extinction. Currently Bursôn is produced with 100% Longanesi grapes in two versions: Bursôn blue label and Bursôn black label.
