THE VINEYARDS

Wyneards 

Our wyneards are located on some of the best hills of the Roero, like Valmaggiore or Patarrone, mothers of our best wines.

The estension of our wyneards nowadys reaches 17 hectars, which 15 are in production and they are distributed in four municipalities, Vezza d'Alba ( Valmaggiore hill), Canale, Castellinaldo and Priocca.

Valmaggiore

Valmaggiore hill is located in the municipality of Vezza d'Alba, sorrounded by woods it emerges like a bold scare. It is composed mainly by sand (80%), vital in helping us to obtain a delicate Nebbiolo ( "cru Valmaggiore ") very clear and a great Chardonnay. 

Our wyneards here cover all the south side, the best one and the hill is also an amazing place to go trekking and cycling.

Patarrone

The wyneard of Patarrone, an hill in the village of patarrone, is instead made quite all of mealstone, a particulary soil of Piedmont. Heavy, grey and impermeabile the mealstone gives us our best wine the Roero Riserva " Giacomo", 100% Nebbiolo grapes, aged at least four years. In addition to the Roero Riserva in this area we also produce a single-wyneard Roero, always 100% Nebbiolo grapes, with an armonius taste and a very balanced body.

At the top of the hill there is also a great panoramic point reachable with a little of trekking.

Vigna di San Michele

The wyneard of San Michele was the first piece of land to be put in production in the far 1900.
It's an area composed mainly by mealstone and limestone where we grow, since the beginning, our Barbera d'Alba.
This specific soil allow us to obtain an exclusive Barbera with a well structured body and a strong taste.

The remote origins of this wyneard are still visibles in the ancient "ciabòt" ( a tiny house used in the past times by the farmer to rest) remained substantially unchanged a part from the external walls, recently painted with bright colours so that tradition and modernity blend togheter.

Other wyneards

The others wyneards are located in Castellinaldo, Priocca and of course Canale d'Alba. In this areas we produce our two whites, the Roero Arneis ( DOCG) and the Favorita, but also Barbera d'Alba and Brachetto
