About us

Company details

History
We are a small family owned winery.
Gianfranco Alessandria is a small family owned vinery that with the help of his wife Bruna, and his daughter Vittoria, continues the tradition begun two generations ago.
After the death of his father in 1986, Gianfranco began the job of the farmer with 4 hectares of vineyards. Initially, the harvest was destined for sale on the market, then step by step slowly began to modernize the winery with machinery and equipment necessary in the wine making process.
Over the years, the production slowly increased, up to now produce about 45,000 bottles.

The winery is situated in Monforte d'Alba, a small village in the Barolo area that over time has attracted the attention of the lovers against the Langa, helping them to discover the history, scenery, food and wines of our area.

Today
Today the cellar owns 5,5 hectares of vineyards and rents 1,5 hectares, divided between Nebbiolo, Barbera and Dolcetto, in the località San Giovanni, which is situated in the area of some of Monforte's best known Crus.
All our vineyards has a south-east exposition, which allows us to produce wines of great structure, with freshness and elegance and longevity.
The way we work is based on natural principles, respecting the time and metodhs required to obtain a product most correct in its form. In fact we work as biologicaly as possible only using minimal amounts of sulfar and verdarame (copper sulfate) out of respect for the environments as well as our own personal health.
Since the beginning Gianfranco began with a drastic reduction in yields of grapes per hectare, which encouraged better ripening of the grapes, making them healthier and more robust to obtain a product of higher quality. The vinification is made with short maceration in temperature-controlled vertical fermenters and then aging is done in small, French oak barrels.
... we continue like this, on our littlejourney, which takes us among vineyards, winery and the world, with the satisfaction of simple peasants from always.
