You are always welcome to come and visit our wine cellar and our beautiful tasting room; we can also take care of your days in our region thanks to Italian Delights, our incoming tour operator.

This is a family-owned winery, in the family for three generations. The property is located just outside La Morra, in the Barolo region. It stands on top of a hill, and the three-story building is rather new and beautifully constructed. The ground floor has a restaurant with multiple, rustic tables, surrounded by large barrels. It also houses the wine shop and tasting area. Higher up there are private rooms and at the top, a great balcony that offers a 360 degree view of the Barolo area. The food, a multicourse pre-set menu, was quite enjoyable. The wines are mostly good, table wines, including dolcetto, barbera, arneis, favorita, several barolos, a barbaresco, gavi, moscato d'Asti and several red blends. We did not get to taste the top wines, but those we tasted were average and not memorable. Service was extremely slow.

We first had a tour through the facility and then had a 5 course lunch with 5 wine pairings. It was really delicious and fun. My favorite wine was the Borolo and I bought a bottle to take home. I highly recommend this activity.

We had high hopes given great online reviews and this experience still managed to top it! We ordered 5 wine tasting and were greeted by a tour of the winery, with lovely lesson on their wines and family history. We then proceeded to wine tasting with 'snacks' - a full on lunch and dinner combined! Honestly, come hungry and don't plan on other food in the evening ;) Everything was delicious, wines were progressively more complex in flavour so you got time to adjust your palate. The trip was great value for money and the location is superb, perfect Piedmontese wineyard experience

We visited on a clear crisp winters Saturday. Book in advance as even at this time of year they are busy. The offer a range of tasting options we chose the option with 4 wines and 4 foods/snacks. Per person 19 euro.

We were greeted by our friendly host who showed us around the cellar and introduced the wines. Great atmosphere among the huge barrels.

We were then lead to the roof where we had panoramic views of the surrounding towns. Absolutely stunning.

We were then taken to the beautiful tasting room with terracotta floors, wooden tables and again the moat amazing views out of huge glass windows. We were brought generous tastings of 4 wines. A white, red blend, Barolo and Muscat. Each accompanied by some food. Tamatoe bruschetta, cold cuts, cheese then to top it off a delicious slice of apple pie! One of the owners poured our wine and explained each briefly. She also let us taste two more reds which were amazing.

We loved the relaxed laid back afternoon we spent here with no one rushing us. The service was impeccable and I would say the type of tasting made it one of the best we have had in Italy. Highly recommended!

We had a group of 11 while visiting the winery. It started with a tour (all in English) about their selection of wines and the process of making Barolo, Barbaresco, and Nebbiolo wines in the region. It was all very informative and then we were seated in a beautiful room overlooking the vineyards for an 8 course wine and food pairing. The food was great and the wines were even better.
The only negative aspect of the meal is it took them over 1 hour to serve the eighth wine after the seventh and they omitted serving us their best barolo wine. However, upon request they did give me (and only me) a small sample of this wine.
