Located in Diano d’Alba: named after the goddess of hunting
The Cortino winery, formerly known as Produttori Dianesi, was established in the 1970s. Gianpaolo was a founding member at that time, and now he owns the winery along with Andrea and Marco Boffa. The winery is located in the heart of Piedmont’s Langhe region in the Diano d’Alba. The town has a lot of history and is named after the Goddess of hunting, Diana. The family has been in winemaking for four generations, and they mix traditional ideas with modern, innovative techniques to make the best wines.
Wines of Cortino winery reflecting spirit and quality of hard work
The main aim of the Cortino winery is to work for the future with the foundations of the past. The wines reflect the spirit and quality of their work and the gifted region of Langhe. In their vineyards, Nebbiolo, Barbera, Dolcetto, Arneis, Pinot noir, Chardonnay, and Moscato are grown. The best grapes are used to make red, white, sparkling, and dessert wines.

Aging on the lees for perfect harmony
The different Dolcettos are Langhe Dolcetto, Pasito di Dolcetto, Diano with no sulfites, Diano, Sori la Rocca, and Sori Santa Lucia. In 2018, Cortino came out with their classic method, Preview, in which the wines are aged for 30 months on the lees. This method is used to make their long-awaited Alta Langhe D.O.C.G wines. The winery is also coming out with its 2016 grown Barolo in January 2020. Healthy work at the estate and the best quality wines is what makes the Cortino a great winery.
