The Bogaty family has traditionally hailed from the Italian Alps where extended relatives of the Bogaty family own and operate a small vineyard. Two generations after Ludwig Bogati immigrated to the United States, James “Jim” Charles Bogaty decided it was time to return to his family's roots.
Three generations of the Bogaty family, Jim and Della, along with their son, Justin and daughters, Tiffany and Ashley, and numerous grandchildren continue the legacy.
