Company details

THE FAMILY
Through all these years the winery has maintained the original family run structure: since early 2000 Silvia, the eldest daughter is fully involved in the business, while Elena, the youngest daughter, moved to Germany where she is running now a small wine importing company.

Elio, his wife Lucia, Silvia and the entire staff follow every single aspect of the work: in the vineyards from pruning to harvest, in the cellar from winemaking to sales, logistic, office work and marketing.

Elio, energetic and bubbly as 40 years ago, supervises on all the activities, but lately he has been focusing on some new challenging projects like: winemaking in Liguria - Cinqueterre, restoring an old abandoned village in Castelmagno (in the mountains between Piemonte and France), cheese making in Castelmagno, growing medicinal herbs, managing a vineyard in the higher Langa hills planted with an old obscure indigenous variety called “Liseiret” in order to make some sparkling wine, growing organic vegetable and fruits…

…this family will never run out of ideas and work!
