The region of Piemonte has always been well-known for its bountiful food, white truffle, and unique wines. In particular, the Langhe zone encompasses the highly regarded Barbaresco and Barolo wines that are made from the nebbiolo grape varietal. The moderate climate of this region enables the grape to mature slowly so that its flavor has great depth and character, yet Piemonte's varied elevations and exposures produce world class wines for everyone's tastes.
- Bruna Grimaldi
About a half century ago Bruna Grimaldi's grandfather began to make wine from a small part of his vineyard of the Grinzane Cavour subzone. In the years following his success with his wine there, Bruna and her husband expanded the family's vineyards to Serralunga d'Alba, Corneliano, and Diano d'Alba. They firmly believe that with the scrupulous care of the vines that their wines will reflect the quality of the grapes.
- Cascina Flino
Paolo Monte established his winery in the early 1990's, but the vines had been in place since the 60's. His southern facing vineyards soak in the Piemonte sun perfectly to complement the limestone and clay prevalent in the soil at Diano D'Alba. He only produces 10000 bottles a year on this small plot of land. Paolo's hard work and insight has made the wines truly unique in every way, shape and form.
- Cascina Saria
Cascina Saria is relatively new to the barbaresco area of winemaking. Although the family has been growing grapes for many years just north of the prestigious Serraboella vineyard, they just began vinification 8 years ago. They have proven that with the proper care the nebbiolo grapes they grow can be made into outstanding wine. The Cascina Saria wines boast of fine structure and tannins as well as good cellaribility.
- Tenuta Dei Re
Tenuta Dei Re is a small company located in Castagnole Monferrato, where the Grignolino, Barbera, and Ruche wines are produced. The vineyards' 10 hectares have been producing crop in the zone since 1870, when the French were driven out of the area by the Longobardi. The climate is cool here, just right for the thin-skinned grape varietals in the zone. Most of the companys' wines are shipped to the EU, but are now available in the U.S. through Baldocchino Wines.
