The Winery is a dream realized by Piero and Luigi Aresca back in 1952: two winegrowers who have turned a passion, born among the rows of Mombercelli, into a family business that never left. They have never lost sight of their origins. Now the winery is run by the second and third generations.
Maintaining the quality as taught by their grandparents, the history is full of anecdotes recalling the passion that initiated this dream. There is a huge pride in thinking that these wines may keep on conveying the extraordinary path they have made throughout these years.
The vineyards are located in the Langhe-Roero and Monferrato Wine District, a unique territory recognized as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Here the hillsides covered with vineyards bear witness to the ancient tradition of grape production on a land that soon revealed itself for the great quality of its products.
