About us

Company details

PIEDMONT
PASSION AND TRADITION, REAL CRAFTERS OF BAROLO
It all started way back in 1886, when Paolo Conterno founded the Casa della Ginestra, dedicated to the production of Nebbiolo, Barbera and Dolcetto wines. Today is Giorgio Conterno who runs the winery and, after generations, shows the same passion for the viticulture. Immersed in the Langhe, situated in the historical “Ginestra” cru, the Conterno family’s company follows, since four generations, the aspiration to perfection, achieving things starting from their true essence. As in the past, each of us makes his own contribution, caring for the vineyards and the cellar with scrupulous dedication. Modern technology, with its labour-saving devices, spares us the exertions of those times and, in part thanks to the experience we have gained, enables us to operate in the best possible way and to reap great satisfaction and ever newer stimuli from our work.
Unique stimuli as the ones that come from the new encounters: it’s why our history in Piemonte develops and our adventure continues between Astigiano and Monferrato in the Antico Podere of “Sant’Uffizio”.
