The Franco Ivaldi winery is in a nice and beautiful atmosphere in Piedmont’s UNESCO World Heritage Site. The company aims to make high-quality wines with typical regional characteristics. The family has a great tradition in winemaking. Franco Ivaldi wanted to begin winemaking because of this rich heritage. In 1995, he decided to inaugurate a brand new wine cellar along with his son Giorgio and wife Caterina. They make quality Piedmontese wines that fully respect the area’s traditional methods and heritage.
Top philosophy at the winery
The winery is in Monferrato’s Caranzano di Cassine area, which is suitable for viticulture and home to many famous DOCs. The hilly vines have limestone soil, which works perfectly with the microclimate to give ideal viticulture conditions. Careful viticulture allows them to grow a small yield of high-quality, ripe grapes. The technological and winemaking techniques used are perfect and maintain their standard. Different batches of grapes undergo vinification separately, and wooden barrels are used for the refinement of ref wines. Complete care is taken right from the vineyards until the moment the wines are bottled.
Typical Piedmont wines
They grow Moscato, Albarossa, Barbera, Dolcetto, which are flanked by the historic varietal Albarossa. It is derived from a cross between Nebbiolo di Dronero and Barbera. The best grapes are handpicked and used to make their famous red, white, rose, sparkling, and dessert wines. Most of their wines have an unmatched, unique taste. The winery is open for tourists and guests for wine tasting all year.
