About us

Company details

Le Cecche is a small hamlet of Diano d’Alba, one of the “11 comuni del Barolo” in Piedmont. With origins dating back to the 18th century, the hamlet consisted of tree small farms. Through marriages between the tree families, Le Cecche finished in the hands of the Marengo family for a long period. The last generation remained without heirs, and sold the property in 2001 to the actual owners, Jan De Bruyne, a Belgian MD and his Italian wife, Marchioness Paola Invrea.

After a thorough restoration of the buildings and the creation of a modern winery, new vineyards of Barbera, Nebbiolo and Merlot were planted on the steep south and southwest facing slopes around the house. Also the old Dolcetto vineyard, dating back to the fifties was restored.
In 2008 a Riesling vineyard was planted in Bossolasco at an altitude of 750m, southfacing, becoming one of the highest vineyards in the Langhe region.

In 2010 a vineyard was bought in the Barolo area, Sorano in Serralunga d’Alba, well known for its long living wines.

In 2014 another Barolo vineyard was bought in Grinzane Cavour. In total Le Cecche owns actually 5,5 ha of vineyards.
The grapes for the Roero Arneis ar bought from a selected vineyard in Corneliano d’Alba. Started with a production of 3.000 bottles in 2002, the production reached 38.000 bottles in 2014.

The consultant agriculturist is Gianpiero Romana, Alberto Marchisio is the consultant winemaker.
