Fratelli Aresca

‘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 has never left these places again. We have never lost sight of our origins. Now the winery is running by the second and third generation.

We have never been satisfied and we keep on seeking the quality as our grandparents taught us. Our history is full of anecdotes recalling the passion we pursued this dream with and we love thinking that our wines may keep on conveying the extraordinary path we have made throughout these years.’
