FROM THE VINEYARD TO THE GLASS

Our winery

The good fortune to be here, with two centuries of history.

EXPERIENCE AND PROFESSIONALISM

The family

We are a family and a firm, each of us has a role based on personal experience and professional know-how.

The cellar is managed by Beppe with his wife Maria and their children Annalisa and Daniele, The new generations are preparing to join: Lucrezia, Ludovica and Aurelio.

FOR MORE THAN TWO CENTURIES

The origins

We are part of the history of this corner of Piemonte, with our love of the land, dedication and skills handed down through the generations. Two centuries ago, in the mid-nineteenth century, Felice, our ancestor was already shipping wine to America in small wooden barrels.

We are proud of our origins and we know that we owe a great deal to our grandparents Aurelio and Liggia. In large families it is difficult to stay together and ours began to take different directions,  but they took the reins in the nineteen-thirties and they gave us an inestimable inheritance: a profession that we consider a privilege.

In the nineteen-seventies Beppe and Maria took over the management of the winery and today it is Annalisa and Daniele who have the honour of presenting the wines born of their land.

FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION

The philosophy

To transmit our traditions and the cultural heritage of winegrowing through the generations.

We aim for ‘sincerity’ in our wines and the love of the land is the basis of our company philosophy. A limited use of sulphites and our refusal to use weedkillers represent the continuation of our company values.

Innovation and experimentation accompany our work to produce wines of ever-finer quality, assisted by a favourable climate that reflects the tastes of an increasingly knowledgeable public, without denying the teachings of our family.

BETWEEN LANGHE AND MONFERRATO

The land

Our vineyards are here, in Basso Piemonte, between Langhe and Monferrato.

We are in the heart of UNESCO country, between the rugged landscapes of Langhe and the rolling hills of Monferrato. Two different landscapes, mothers to different nectars, linked by the culture of wine that starts with the orderly vineyards and reaches countries all over the world.

Our fourteen hectares of vineyard, all carefully cultivated by hand, drape the hills most suited to the cultivation of the different varieties of grapevine. They lie between Canelli, the home of Moscato d’Asti, Corneliano, the land of Nebbiolo, and Moasca, which is ideal for the cultivation of Nizza and Barbera d’Asti.

UNESCO describes these landscapes as “…outstanding living testimony to winegrowing and wine making traditions…”
