About us

Company details

LA SPINONA, A STORY COLOURED BY BARBARESCO

Barbaresco wine is a family affair at La Spinona. From the grandfather Pietro, to his son Gualtiero and then his grandson Pietropaolo: for decades, the Berutti family have believed in the land on the hills of the municipality of Barbaresco, a place dedicated to the production of great wines.

La Spinona is a company that represents its founder Pietro Berutti, a man of great experience who believed in Barbaresco since the 1940s. Pietro’s son Gualtiero, an experienced veterinary surgeon, brought his expertise not only to the breeding of Piemontese cattle, but also to the cultivation of the vineyards and selection of the best products, while respecting the environment. This is a responsibility he continues to bear, confident that his commitment is shared by his son Pietropaolo, a wine-making technician and head of production in the winery, together with the marketing side.


La Spinona, a name associated with the land, originates from part of the family’s life history: the still-vivid memory of their dog, Baica, a Spinone Italiano. She was a friend and “sister”, who accompanied Pietro for years along the path that led to the development of the winery in the late 1940s. Baica is a symbol that still has pride of place on the company logo and, throughout the world, represents the history of a winery that makes high-quality wine through meticulous work and attention to nature, to obtain wines that are clean, elegant and traditional.

The results can be seen in abundance: the Barbaresco, Barolo, Langhe Nebbiolo, Barbera d’Alba, Dolcetto d’Alba and Langhe Chardonnay are all appreciated in the major markets, including the US, Japan and Canada.
