In this way, on one hand, we want to help, promote and raise awareness the manufactures of our land, even small and smallest, who do not have much visibility, and, at the same time, offer quality products at very attractive prices
The roots of the Azienda Agricola Barale Fratelli reach back to distant 1870, soon after Barolo wine made its appearance in the Langhe thanks to the work of the Falletti Marquis and of Camillo Benso, Count of Cavour. It was Cavour who invited French enologist Louis Oudart to the Langhe in order to develop an innovative style of winemaking suited to the Nebbiolo grape, which gave birth to modern Barolo production.
Francesco Barale was among the pioneers of this fortunate wine. The first traces of the Barale family in Barolo date to a 1600 parochial register. They owned vineyards in the Castellero, Cannubi, Preda and Costa di Rose zones. Today Sergio Barale, with his daughters Eleonora and Gloria, continue the family’s centuries-old experience of wine production. The cellar has embraced new technologies, always with the aim to increase the quality of Barolo and other typical wines from these hills.
Nonetheless, today as in the past, the character of wines is forged in the vineyard through assiduous manual labor. The processes of vinification and ageing merely maintain the equilibrium of the fruit’s components, with the aim of producing harmonious wines, readily recognizable in their organoleptic qualities as true to the grape varietal and the zone of origin.
At Bricco Mollea, old farmhouse situated in the proximities of the Monregalese Langhe, the vineyards have long been cultivated to produce wines such as Dogliani D.O.C.G., Langhe Nebbiolo D.O.C. and a limited production of Barolo D.O.C.G. made with grapes from La Morra.
Besides producing wine, the creative perseverance of the owner, Angioletta De Giorgis, allowed for a restoration the old farmhouse for accommodation and event purposes. As a result, the old farmhouse has now become Antica Meridiana Relais Art (http://www.relais-art.com/), an example of fusion design where the explosive art of Massimo Martinelli, encounters with Angioletta’s passion for vintage and objects collected during their lifetime.

The work at La Spinetta is dedicated to the vineyards, which we treat with the utmost care, attention and respect, especially in regards to agronomy and production quantities. By using no or the least possible amount of chemicals and by keeping our production relatively small (only 17-20 hl (1.7 -2 tons) per hectare), we put 90% of our effort into our vineyards. We are aware that the vineyards have long existed before La Spinetta has begun to make wine and they will survive us. Not having inherited our land through generations of winemakers, our vineyards were carefully selected. All of our vineyards have south, south-east or south-west exposure and the vines are mostly of old age (35-65 years). Only vines of substantial age are able to give mineralogy, longevity, complexity and terrain character to the wine. Vines of younger age, we only use to make three wines: Barbera Cà di Pian, Langhe Nebbiolo and Il Nero di Casanova. Piedmont is famous for its red grapes such as Barbera, Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and the white variety Moscato, that have a long history and are indigenous to our region. We prefer to make wines that are typical of Piedmont, typical for the terrain they grow on, reflecting a taste unquestionably identifiable with the land they originate from. Our philosophy is to take one step back, away from a globalization of character and taste, back to the roots and the history of our land. Our grapes are Barbera, Nebbiolo, Moscato in Piedmont and Sangiovese, Colorino and Vermentino at our Tuscan Estate.
The Ghiga family has very deep-rooted farming origins dating back to the early 70s in Castiglione Tinella, an area particularly suited for cultivating Muscat grapes. Mario Ghiga was the first to launch the business by producing most of the grapes for wine to be sold to the sparkling wine industries. Mario also bought a lot of new land, located around the “Ghiga Hill” house (which is still where the company is based). On this white and sunny land, he planted more Muscat vineyards; vineyards which today produce high quality grapes.
Mario’s entrepreneurial activity continued over the years not only with the purchase of new plots but also by creating Dolcetto and Barbera vineyards, which are located in the municipality of Costigliole d’Asti. A typical area of Barbera d’Asti. Thus the Company’s present framework came to being.

The Ressia family has been growing and selling wine for three generations, since 1930. Since 1977 their farm is located in Neive, a quaint village in the heart of the Langhe. They build their farmhouse on a hill called Canova. The hill took its name from their farmhouse: in fact, in Piedmontese, this expression means New house and they were the first to build their home up there). Fabrizio Ressia, together with his mother Miranda and the rest of the family, runs the winery. The great exposure of the vineyards – they are situated southward – favoured the development of the family business: it covers around 6.5 hectares. Integrated plant protection (wich implies low hectare yield, exclusive use of organic manuring, no chemical weed control, environmentally friendly treatements, revegetation and eco-friendly practices) is performed.
The Ressia family aims at producing wines using exclusively their own vineyard in order to recreate the flavour of their territory – its specific features, its elegance and its harmony – and to preserve the environment.
Ressia is considered one of the most representative wineries of this Cru thanks to its unique way of producing wines. Ressia manages to combine tradition and innovation.
On May 15, 1841 the police office of the royal Military Command in Alba granted Luigi Costamagna, son of the estate’s founder Francesco Antonio Costamagna, an official licence “to retail the wine produced from his own vineyards” in La Morra.In 1911, Francesco Costamagna and his son Riccardo were awarded a gold medal at the “Gran Premio dell’Esposizione Internazionale di Torino” for fifty years of winemaking.
When Francesco died, his son Riccardo, an attorney, continued to manage the winery with the help of his wife Maddalena. When he died in the 1930s, Riccardo’s wife decided to sell the vineyards located outside La Morra. Wine was produced only for the family’s own consumption and some grapes were sold to other winemakers.
In the late 1960s, Maddalena’s niece, Claudia Ferraresi, together with her husband Giorgio Locatelli, restarted the commercial winemaking activity, planted new vineyards and modernised the old winery.
Since the mid 1980s their son Alessandro Locatelli has been managing the winery with the help of agronomist Gian Piero Romana and enologist Giuseppe Caviola.
Alessandro has improved the vineyards and wine-making techniques, he has been developing customer sales all over the world, and so carrying on the family tradition with passion and drawing on the wealth of experience gathered by the family.
