The winery is family owned, now as at the time of its foundation.
Its objective is to consolidate the acknowledgements of the quality of its wines and spread an image of excellence for the area. The aim is to produce wines capable of reflecting the character of the Roero, its soil and its values, respect for tradition and constant ability to renew.
The Cellar is the heart of the winery. It's made up of a space for the stainless steel tanks, one for used barrels, another one for the storage of bottles and boxes, as well as a room occupied by wine-making machineries, by machineries for packaging and, during the harvest, by the wine press. The parts of the cellar reserved to packaging, storage and aging wine in barrels are underground: this provides a natural regulation of the temperature. For white wines, on the other hand, the temperature is rigorously controlled.
For what concerns white wines, tradition meets technologies: the operation of wine making is completed in absence of oxygen, in order to retain the perfumes.
