Mauro Molinio, Matteo and Martina's father, founded the estate. In 1973 Mauro graduated from enology school in Alba, and then followed that with five years of winemaking experience in Emilia Romagna. In 1979, after his father's passing, he returned home to the family farm in La Morra and began consulting for local wineries while building up his own estate. 1982 was the first vintage from the famed family parcel in Conca dell'Annunziata, and the rest is history.
The company continues to produce wines in Annunziata of La Morra, in the utmost respect of traditions. The total area amounts to 12 hectares, 50% of which is meant for Nebbiolo for Barolo. The rest is devoted to the production of Barbera d’Alba, Dolcetto d’Alba and, in a smaller quantity, of Roero Arneis. A lot has changed since the early beginnings: events took place crucial to the continuation of this wonderful adventure of winemaking passion and dedication.
