Antica Cascina dei Conti di Roero

Family winery in Roero

About the winery
We love and respect our vineyards and, in 2016, we joined “The Green Experience”, a project conceived by Coldiretti Cuneo; a certification for those who want to implement sustainable viticulture, using the green manure technique and sowing flowers and pulses in autumn. The cellar was created in the Seventies. Our arrival on the estate coincided with a technological revolution and a change in the tanks, which are now all temperature controlled. The grapes are all hand picked. We harvest them into small crates which are taken immediately to the cellar and pressed straight away. Fermentation takes place in a specific area, where we check the temperature constantly. We have also created a cell for the fermentation of sparkling wines. Our bottling line occupies what was once an animal shed. Lastly, we have created a temperature controlled room for the storage of bottles.

History & Geography
We arrived on the estate in the Nineties, just after we got married. We grew up among the vineyards, hills and people of the Roero district. Both of us come from farming families. The land is in our blood. Our idea of winegrowing can be explained in a single word: authenticity. This is a concept that we apply in the vineyard, in the cellar and in our life. We have decided to believe in and use only native gape varieties: Nebbiolo, Arneis, Favorita and Barbera. The Antica Cascina dei Conti di Roero estate was established in the early 1950s, when the Olivero family, Daniela’s parents, bought the Valmenera farmhouse in Vezza d’Alba. They added the land and vineyards already owned in the Certuti region, better known as Sru, in the municipal districts of Canale and Monteu Roero, now a UNESCO World Heritage core zone. In the beginning, it was a typical farm, cultivating fruit, vines and cereal crops, as well as keeping livestock. The turnaround came in the early Seventies, when the decision.
