Founded in 1837, Cantine Povero is one of the oldest wine companies in Piedmont. Based in Cisterna d’Asti, a fragmented holding of forty-five hectares allows for the production of wines from across the region.
The Conterno family has been making wines in Monforte for more than two hundred years. Today they produce 80,000 bottles from around twenty-five hectares, many of which are now more than sixty years old.
Based in Castiglione Falletto, the Vietti family produces a range of highly regarded Barolo wines as well as a number of other typical local wines from around the Langhe and the Roero areas of Piedmont.
Founded in 1982 by Claudio Conterno and Guido Fantino, Conterno Fantino is one of the most respected names in Barolo. The estate is particularly famous for its Cru Barolo, produced from organically cultivated grapes.
