Monchiero

In the heart of the vineyards of Castiglione Falletto one finds the roots of the Monchiero vineyard estate’s passion. Here, in the regions of La Morra, Alba (Ms Scaparoni), Roddi, Verduno and Treiso, 40,000 bottles are produced from 12 hectares using the best refinement techniques and an optimum combination winemaking to achieve a significant result.

The brothers Remo and Maggiorino Monchiero embarked on their wine journey in the 50s. First, they only sold grapes, and then came the desire to make wine themselves. And so the journey continued, until in the 70s the wine was drawn into bottles and placed on the market: the “gold” of the Langa – Barolo for abroad (USA), the young wines for Italy.

Vittorio Monchiero, son of Maggiorino, graduated from the college of viticulture in Alba and gradually became more involved in the running the estate. He took over the wine cellar and marketing activities, travelled and attended trade fairs throughout the world. Tradition and innovation left their mark; production grew, not least thanks to the acquisition of choice land.
