Livia Fontana – A Historic Winery that Delivers the Best Barolo Wines

Situated on the border of Castiglione Falletto, facing Monforte d’Alba, one can find a historic Livia Fontana Winery, sitting on the highest point of the Mondriondino vineyard. Livia Fontana was the first wine estate that built a domed wine cellar with old bricks and wooden casks, giving it a traditional essence. Today, the company produces around 70,000 bottles of red, white, and rose wines for local and international consumers.

A Fascinating Story of the Eight Generation Winemakers

A beautiful tradition began 200 years ago still got the same essence in the wine production process as started by the ancestors. Livia, the current owner of Livia Fontana Winery, inherited the estate from her father, Ettore. Today, with the same enthusiasm and commitment, she handles all the operations, from grape cultivation to bottling, along with her sons, Michele and Lorenzo. They produce wines using traditional methods, creatively merged with modern techniques, ensuring the organoleptic characteristics of the grains remain intact.

Fresh Terroirs Offering the Production of Well-Known Single Vineyard Crus

The Fontana family cultivates around ten hectares of vineyards. In the Bussia region, they grow top-quality Nebbiolo and Barbera, whereas they have a dedicated plot for Arneis in Roero. Livia Fontana Winery has some of the best Barolo crus in Villero and Bussia, where old and young wines grow together. Respecting the conventional methods, the berries are picked manually. The wines are stored in large wooden oak barrels, as is the tradition.
