The History of the Fornos Family Winery

The Fornos Family has a great history of winemaking, established by Pietro Forno in 1940. He began the wine production using one variety of grape – Moscato. In later years, many advancements took place, such as renovation of the cellar, restoration of vineyards and introduction of modern techniques. Today, the fourth generation of Fornos family is handling the winery, owned by three brothers – Giorgio, Fabrizio and Adriano Forno.

Moscato and Other Delightful Grape Varieties at Tenuta Il Falchetto

The vineyards are planted with a wide array of nine vine varieties which includes both native and international, carefully chosen by the owners. 50% of the vineyards are dedicated to Moscato cultivation while 30% area is given to Barbera under Barbera D’alba Doc. Along with that, 20% area of vine plantation is for unique Dolcetto, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Pinot Nero. The staff carefully carries out the winter pruning and summer thinning, followed by 100% manual methods of harvesting to obtain only the best grapes for wines. Tenuta Il Falchetto boasts one of the best award-winning Moscato and Barbera wines. Plan a visit to the winery to have a chance to savour them.
