About us

Company details

At La Morra everyone calls us Ballarin, but our real name is Viberti. Ballarin has been the family nickname for generations.
In 1928, our great-grandfather and grandfather, after working for several years as farmers in another farm, began to build their house, cellar, stable and barn. For many years, the company activities were centred on the cultivation of fruit, grapes, cereals, hazelnuts, as well as on raising cattle and producing wine.

Our transformation and specialization in viticulture began 25 years ago.

Some of the old crops were replaced by vineyards, the warehouse was renovated and tuned into a wine cellar, the stable and the barn, after significant renovations, became guest rooms and finally we built a small agri-camping for our guests who want to enjoy the open air and immerse themselves in nature.

Today at Cascina Ballarin we grow grapes in our own vineyards in La Morra, Monforte d’Alba, Novello and produce wine in our own cellar. Barolo is our main wine. Different types of Barolo are produced separately from different vineyards in order to preserve the nuances that different types of soil offer. In addition, we produce Barbera d’Alba , Dolcetto d’Alba , Langhe Rosso e Langhe Bianco.

The entire family works at Cascina Ballarin, each member taking care of different tasks: from the work in the vineyards to the production of the grapes to the wine-making process. After ageing the various wines for the specific amount of time, they are bottled and sold under our own name CASCINA BALLARIN

The final quality of our wines is at the core of all operations, along with the respect of the environment and nature and the employment of sustainable practices. Cascina Ballarin organizes, upon reservation, guided tours and tastings for small and large groups, and proposes food and wine pairings with some traditional local products, particularly cheese and cold cuts.
