Harvest after harvest
We sow our roots in the great land of Langa
In the early twentieth century, Josetta’s father, Ernesto, began cultivating the vineyards inherited from his father. In 1975, very young, Josetta decides to take care of his father’s vineyards. Graduated in agriculture and flanked by her husband Roberto, an oenologist, begins cultivating vineyards planted by grandparents just after the Second World War. After a few years, Josetta and Roberto see their labors rewarded and succeed in producing a Nebbiolo of recognized quality. In 1985, the first Barolo was presented with the current label, the result of a passion and commitment never diminished…
Gnomes are the consciences of good men
Josetta, author of the original label designs, kept alive these stories for her children Sara and Alessio. She decided to dedicate wines to these little creatures that help farmers in the fields, taking care of the animals and the cellar in exchange for a bit of wine.
The originality and beauty of these designs, made the illustrations of Josetta Saffirio famous worldwide. The gnome perfectly represents our way of producing wine in a perspective of sustainability
Our roots are in Monforte d’Alba, in Piedmont, from five generations and two hundred years
I believe I have had the great privilege of being born here, that I could grow up knowing the lights, colors, and smells of this earth. Until one day I realized that it was not the land to belong to me, but I was to belong to it
