Ca’Viola, a Classic Family-Run Winery
The journey of the Ca’Viola Winery began in Montelupo Albese, in the hills of Langhe. Beppe rented the vineyards of his dreams and started the vinification of grapes in his parents’ garage. In 1991, Beppe undertook another challenge and decided to vinify his small plot of Barbera with new trends. He created the iconic “Bric du Luv” and released 860 Dolcetto bottles, the first wine label under the Ca’Viola Winery name.
Relocaton and Guest Accommodations
Their winery is now equipped with all the modern technologies and equipment required for winemaking. In 2002, Beppe moved the Ca’Viola Winery to Dogliani, and the family set up a complex that combines wines and hospitality for visitors.
The Villa Braco is a luxurious accommodation for guests that provides lunch and dinner in collaboration with many local restaurants.
Traditional Winemaking at the Ca’Viola Winery
The central part of their winery and most of their vineyards are located in Montepulo, covering around 12 hectares. The soil and climate of the region are perfect for the growth and cultivation of vines. Vine growers mostly work manually in the vineyard because of the steep slopes. The primary grapes grown in their vineyards include Riesling, Dolcetto, Barbera, and Nebbiolo. The workers handpick the best grapes and use them to produce their award-winning red and white wines. The yield from there vineyards is low but of excellent quality. Their hard work and commitment towards winemaking have led them to win many national and international awards for their wines.
