Montaribaldi, Barbaresco: Address, Phone Number, Montaribaldi Reviews: 5/5

About
Tradition and innovation. This is the oxymoron on which the Montaribaldi company grounds its great success. Founded in 1968 in the very heart of Barbaresco by Giuseppe Talliano and his wife, it was then taken over in 1994 by their sons Luciano and Roberto. Now the whole family is running it, brewing with passion the best quality wines while always respecting the oldest traditions.As matter of fact, in the last few years, the company has decided to bet on innovation without changing its best traditions. It is exactly that which makes the company able to continuously improve the quality of their wines, while always promoting their land. Such careful management, along with the favorable climate conditions, the richness of its soil, the implementation of new biodynamic techniques, the accurate selection of wines and the careful vinification let Montaribaldi obtain a wide range of excellent, unique wines which are appreciated all over the world and which have become a clear example of the “glocal” philosophy.

Family winery with excellence

This is a must visit winery, staff are great and the wine is excellent.
Wine tasting is only €8 but is negated if you buy enough wine.

Nice winetasting
Aug 2019
Nice view along their vineyards while tasting.
Friendly staff (despite we were one hour late and ruined thus her lunch break). We asked in advance only to taste red wines and this was no problem at all.
Before us, there were 5 friends tasting wines and I was as tourist ashamed. They were enjoying their wines but didn't buy a single bottle. If you do like their wines, buy them. If everybody does like them, wine tastings are forced to increase their prices for tasting even more. Let their business model be to sell wine, not to be a bar.

Great place, great hostess, great wine!
Jul 2019 • Couples
We were 8 adults wanting to taste some Piemonte wine, and found this winery on Tripadvisor. We knew that we were close to lunch hours, during which they would be closed. But Antonella was very kind and spent 1,5 hours with us. Since only 6 of us were going to taste, she told us about and let us taste more than the normal 4 wines. We tasted the brut first, before a chardonnay and a rosato. After that we tasted a Dolcetto, a Barbaresco (the queen) and a Barolo (the king). We also tasted their Moscato, and finally Antonella brought out 3 different kinds of grappa. So about 10 different wines :-) We were very happy with this, of course, and can definitely recommend this place to everyone who wants to learn about and taste Piemonte wine!

A "must do" when in Barbaresco!
Jul 2019 • Friends
We were 2 couples and took full package tasting with totally 10 different wines during 3 hours. You have the possibilty to influence what wines to taste. Some very good local ham and cheeses were served longside. Very competent and nice hostess.

Small offers, using one glass for 4 different wines!
Apr 2019 • Friends
This cantina is located opposite the Osteria Taste, 3 km away from the city center of Barbaresco.

A parking is in front of the house.

We wanted to visit this cantina because we drank a bottle of their Barbaresco red wine.

We tried to find the entrance which took some time.

We rang the bell of the office with the name of Cantina.

A lady opened the door and told us that she is unable to speak English.

Thanks God my friend is an English teacher.

From the back side we got shown the wine yards and information about the different grapes.

Outside the building you can see several metal wine tanks.

Then we were entering the wine shop which is also the room for wine tasting.

The look of that room is very basic.

The tasting will be charged with 8,00 € per person!

For this price you will be allowed to taste 4 different wines.

At the wall was a quite small rack with wine bottles to sell.

On the table was a spittoon.

Now the surprise came.

While putting a very small amount of wine in our glasses, the glasses were not exchanged for the different wines!

Try to imagine that you drink white wine and then red wine out of the same glass!

2 times out of 4 times the Italian lady has poured another different sort of red wine into the glass where still a rest of the former wine was on the bottom of the glass.

From our experiences and ability to compare wines - also in Barbaresco - the majority of the offered wines were of average quality!

Despite of that we bought 5 bottles of wine.

Then I went to the toilet. Guess what, the fluid soap out of the super market for a price of less than 1,00 € was extended with water!!

I cannot recommend this cantina!

Gorgeous location, friendly welcome
Sep 2018 • Couples
Montaribaldi is located on top of a hill, on the outskirts of Barbaresco. It is a family-run winery, with parents, children and the in-laws all pitching in in all aspects of the wine production and sale. Our visit was most pleasant. We were welcome on the terrace that overlooks the valley, and acres and acres of vineyards. It was a sunny and warm afternoon, with a mild breeze cooling us under a tarp. The winery produces 3 Barbarescos, one Barolo, 3 Barberas, one Nebbiolo, one Dolcetto, one Niculin, one Arneis, two Chardonnays, one Rose, an excellent sparkling wine, two sweet wines and several Grappas. We tasted most of them, except for the grappas. Montaribaldi produces pleasant wines, easy to drink and not expensive.

Outstanding wine tasting
Sep 2018 • Couples
We came in late afternoon just before closing time without reservation. The staff was kind and accommodating and told us to wait a moment to see if they had time. Some minutes after Antonella came out and offered us a wine tasting. She gave us a guided tour to the cellar before the tasting of their wines. We got some breadsticks and cheese with jam to the wines. Antonella was very serviceminded and she explained everything about the wines.
Their wines are very tasting and we tasted five-six wines and three grappas. We bought wines for over 50€ and got the wine tasting offered.
We can definitely recommend the cantina for others.

In the hearth of Barbaresco
Aug 2018 • Couples
We booked last minute, through their website. Actually we were pleasently surprised to get an answer in a couple of hours in perfect english, with the confirmation and all the details of our visit the next day.

The tour takes about one hour and it is very well structured: you get a glimpse of the whole process from the vineyards to the finished product. You will also be introduced into all the rules and regulations of Barbaresco area.

We tasted 7 wines and had the option to taste a few more grappas as well. The selection of wines was well constructed, to take you from the easy whites to the elegant Barbarescos.

Cheese, bread and jam made the experience whole.

The lady, who hosted us spoke almost perfect english and was very knowledgable.

Thank you!

Nice winery in Barbaresco
Jul 2018 • Couples
We drove out from Alba for a tour and tasting. The scenery is very nice and worth the drive alone which took about 20 minutes. The winery sits on a hill overlooking much of the Barbaresco wine area. The tour was relatively short, but interesting. The wines we tasted were very good. Our hostess was very nice and provided some snacks. Like many wineries these days, the cost was EU10 pp unless you spent EU 50. We shipped home 4 bottles - two Barbarescos and two Barbaras. The shipment arrived about a week after we got home.
