Marotti Campi winery is 100% family owned. In the mid-19th century Marotti family purchased the land in SantAmico hamlet of Morro DAlba and built a villa in the heart of the Estate. An article featured in the local agricultural newspaper dated 1886 informs us that the first vineyard of Cesare Marotti consisted of “…8.000 vines, each positioned at a distance of 1.2 metres, using the Gouyot traning system”. At that time wheat and other crops were mainly cultivated in this area, but as the years and generations passed the farm landscape became more predominantly vineyards due to the natural suitability of this land to viticolture.
