History about their Vineyards
After a thorough restoration of the buildings and the creation of a modern winery, new vineyards of Barbera, Nebbiolo and Merlot were planted on the steep south and southwest facing slopes of the estate. Along with this, the Dolcetto vineyard, dating back to the fifties was also restored. In 2008 a vineyard for white wine was planted in Bossolasco at an altitude of 750m, southfacing, becoming one of the highest vineyards in the Langhe region. In 2010 a vineyard was bought in the Barolo area, MGA Sorano in Serralunga d’Alba, well known for its long living wines. In 2014 a second Barolo vineyard was bought in Grinzane Cavour, MGA Borzone , and in 2015 another vineyard in Monforte, MGA Bricco San Pietro.
With the assistance of some of the world’s best wine markers and a top engineering team, the Le Cecche winery crafts wines that have achieved international acclaim in various wine guides and magazines for their excellent quality and taste.
