The story of the Ca' Viola winery begins in Montelupo Albese, in the Langa, still the Langa of the 1980s: the hills were not yet famous, but a new wind was starting to blow. Beppe rented the vineyard of his dreams, called Barturot, and began vinifying the grapes in the garage of his parents' house. One day Elio Altare, already an established star in the Barolo galaxy, tasted that wine and encouraged Beppe to bottle it. It was 1991. Beppe immediately took on another challenge. In Montelupo he also managed a small plot of barbera, which he decided to vinify following the new trends, and so created the celebrated Bric du Luv, which symbolized the evolution (actually, the revolution) that was going on under the Langa skies.
New labels were created, and in 2002 the winery moved to Dogliani, where the Caviola family created a complex in which production, consultancy and hospitality (the Villa Bracco hotel is becoming a reality) can coexist in harmony, united by the same philosophy of simplicity and excellence.
In 2005, the most prestigious chapter opened: managing a Barolo nebbiolo vineyard. The Sottocastello di Novello cru was selected, and brother-in-law Giancarlo is also involved in the challenge. So the first label of the "king of wines" comes onto the scene. From the wolf hills to Dogliani and on to Barolo. A long road has already been travelled, but there is much more to come. The future has already started.
