Giacosa Fratelli, Making Top Quality Langhe Wines
There were four brothers, Leone, Constantino, Giuseppe, and Giovanni, who moved to the Langhe region towards the end of the 19th century to work. Giuseppe fulfilled his dream of owning a wine cellar and make wines in the hills where he took birth. The winery Giacosa Fratelli was established in 1895 when Giuseppe purchased it. His son Leone took over the business and worked hard to make wines. His sons Valerio and Renzo improved the winemaking techniques and sales after him. Since 1990, the company has planted more vineyards, and the current generation maintains the family tradition of making top quality Langhe wines.
Best Area to Grow Best Fruity Grapes
The company acquired the San Pietro and Cascina Canavere vineyards in 1991, and Castiglione Falletto Vigna Mandorlo in 1994. One hectare of Dolcetto was bought in 2000, while three hectares of Barbera were bought in Madonna Como. Then in 2003, they bought 3.5 hectares of Nebbiolo in Neive’s Basarin vineyard. Today, they own and cultivate around 50 hectares of vineyards in the best locations of the region. Arneis, Nebbiolo, Dolcetto, and Barbera grapes are used to make their red and white wines.
Creative Winemaking With Perfect Balance of Tradition and History With Modern Technology
In their wine cellar, the grapes are turned into wine using the best techniques and equipment. A proper combination of innovative technology and traditions allow them to make high-quality, unique regional wines. The wines undergo organoleptic and analytical tests. The company has increased the number of wooden barrels, steel vats, and bottling machinery to increase wine production. Wine lovers are welcome to visit the winery for wine tasting and relax in the beautiful Langhe region.
