Oddero

It is difficult to indicate when the Oddero company was established since the vineyards and farmsteads have always belonged to the family. A study of the parish and municipal documents, however, shows with certainty that the Oddero family has been present in the territory of La Morra since at least the 18th century. Through writings, notarial deeds and private photographs, we know that Giovanni Battista Oddero (1794 -1874) - and later his sons Lorenzo (1821-1903) and Luigi (1832-1893) - at the turn of the 18th and 19th centuries began making wine from grapes grown in vineyards located in the town of La Morra.

Thanks to them, the company's wine took the world by storm, first sold in small casks and demijohns and, from 1878, in bottles, thanks to the efforts of the first Giacomo Oddero (1851-1915). Recent discoveries show that, towards the end of the 19th century, Oddero Barolo was already being successfully exported to the Americas in small oak barrels. Oddero wines also won important awards in Italy. In 1911, the Barolo was a protagonist at the International Exhibition in Turin, taking part in the tasting organised by the Circolo Enofilo Subalpino on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Unification of Italy.

The company's contemporary history is inextricably linked to that of Giacomo Oddero, born in 1926, grandson of the first Giacomo of the family, from whom he inherited the name. An eclectic figure with wide-ranging cultural interests, from the 1950s onwards Giacomo renovated the old farm and began a long battle to raise the quality and prestige of the wines. Not only those he produced, but of the entire Province of Cuneo. Among his many public and administrative appointments, he was a provincial councillor for Agriculture, signing the historic regulations that granted Doc and then Docg status to the wines of the Langhe and Roero, as well as many regulations for almost all agricultural products: from cheeses to the Langa hazelnut, to lowland vegetables. In 1997 Giacomo Oddero founded the National Study Centre on the Alba Truffle, today Italy's main centre for the study and promotion of the 'King of mushrooms', the famous Tuber Magnatum Pico. Under Giacomo's leadership, Poderi e Cantine Oddero took on its current production configuration, expanding the size of the vineyards, the number of bottles produced and upholding a quality policy that is now internationally recognised.

Giacomo Oddero's legacy is now picked up and carried on by his daughter Mariacristina, who joined the company in the late 1990s, and his grandchildren Isabella and Pietro, who represent the seventh generation of a family with over a century and a half of winemaking tradition. Lovingly preserving the tradition of the founding fathers, the new generation has brought a breath of youth, elegance and innovation to Oddero while respecting the environment in the vineyard and the wine in the cellar. Their careful work has brought prestigious national and international recognition: achievements obtained with passion, hard work and tenacity.
