The land is in our blood.?Our idea of winegrowing can be explained in a single word: authenticity. This is a concept that we apply in the vineyard, in the cellar and in our life.

Today we make about 100 thousand bottles. This isn’t a job, its our way of life. We have lots of plans and we’d like to tell you a little bit about them!

Us: Daniela and Luigi

We arrived on the estate in the Nineties, just after we got married. We grew up among the vineyards, hills and people of the Roero district. Both of us come from farming families. The land is in our blood.

Our idea of winegrowing can be explained in a single word: authenticity. This is a concept that we apply in the vineyard, in the cellar and in our life. We have decided to believe in and use only native gape varieties: Nebbiolo, Arneis, Favorita and Barbera

The history of the estate

The history of the estate

The Antica Cascina dei Conti di Roero estate was established in the early 1950s, when the Olivero family, Daniela’s parents, bought the Valmenera farmhouse in Vezza d’Alba. They added the land and vineyards already owned in the Certuti region, better known as Sru, in the municipal districts of Canale and Monteu Roero, now a UNESCO World Heritage core zone. In the beginning, it was a typical farm, cultivating fruit, vines and cereal crops, as well as keeping livestock. The turnaround came in the early Seventies, when the decision was made to focus exclusively on viticulture and winemaking.

Our World Heritage Roero vineyards

We have 13.5 hectares of estate-owned vineyards in an area acknowledged by UNESCO as World Heritage, due to the beauty of its vineyard landscape. Our first investment, in 1998, was the purchase of Casina Penna, in the municipality of Canale. Over the years, we have continued to invest and to grow. Today we make about 100 thousand bottles. This isn’t a job, its our way of life. We have lots of plans and we’d like to tell you a little bit about them!

Values

. We love and respect our vineyards and, in 2016, we joined “The Green Experience”, a project conceived by Coldiretti Cuneo; a certification for those who want to implement sustainable viticulture, using the green manure technique and sowing flowers and pulses in autumn.
