About the winery
The Cornarea Wine Producing Company is located next to Canale, in the heart of the Roero area and on the sides of the historic Cornarea Hill whose name goes back to the year 1000. The company disposes of 15 hectares of vineyards cultivated with Arneis and Nebbiolo. Here, towards the mid 70s, Piero Bovone and Francesca Rapetti first planted an ancient white autochthonous grape of the Roero area that had almost disappeared: the Arneis, recovering it form few rows that still existed within the Nebbiolo and Barbera vineyards. Those same vineyards, which are now in the prime of their lives, are still presently producing the grapes of the Roero Arneis Cornarea. Piero and Francesca have now been joined by their sons, the oenologist Gian Nicola Bovone and Pierfranco Bovone, a lawyer. Together they have taken up the mission of protecting the Cornarea tradition and maintaining quality in the production of Roero Arneis, Roero docg and Nebbiolo d'Alba.

History & Geography
In the Roero area, the Cornarea vineyards have a rare and precious characteristic: they extend in an only compact body that includes the hill with the same name, on the top of which Villa Cornarea is to be found. For this reason our wine producing company has taken up the name of the historical Cornarea Hill, so called since the year 1000. The vineyards were planted by the Bovone family between 1975 and 1978. Among the soft clods of the Roero soil, still now, it is possible to find sea fossils. A high percentage of magnesium in the Cornarea soil gives our wines a typical mineral content and a high aging versatility.
