The story begins in 1900 when grandfather Bernardo began cultivating vineyards and starting his activity as a winemaker. In the 1980s, his son Bruno Pierluigi, driven by a passion for the agricultural and wine making world, began to vinify his grapes.

Barbera is one of the main black grape varieties of Piedmont, the most cultivated in the provinces of Asti and Alessandria. During the eighteenth century Barbera expanded rapidly, especially in the Astesana, Monferrato, Alessandrino, Tortonese, Vercellese and Novarese areas, while in the Langa it spread relatively around 1860-1870. Their Barbera grows in the sunny and calcareous land with clayey veins.
