About us

Company details

"Le Ginestre" is a wine-growing company located in the village of Grinzane Cavour, approximately 6 km from Alba, in the Langhe hills in Piedmont, in the north-west of Italy. Grinzane Cavour is one of the only Il villages in this out¬standing wine-growing area where Barolo can be produced.
In the XVIII century, during the reign of Emmanuel II, most of the land around Grinzane Castle belonged to Count Camillo Benso of Cavour, the political architect of the Unification of Italy, and Mayor of our commune for 17 years. When the estate was sold, the land was purchased by local farmers, including our forebears. When Franco Audasso took over this smallholding in 1980, he began to sell his wines with the help of his wife, Giulia Vacchetti. Later their children, Gian Luca and Barbara, started working in the company too.
Over the course of the years the initial property has been extended, with the acquisition of other vineyards, which have been partly replanted using the clo¬nes that are best-suited to the type of soil. Currently we own a Vineyard of 4,5 Ha., in a single piece, lies in the village of Novello, on the highly prized "Sottocastello di Novello" Cru where we can produce our best Barolo wine. In the Monforte d’Alba village, instead, we have the Barbera and the Dolcetto vineyards.
