Their wine growing can be explained in a single word: authenticity
The Antica Cascina dei Conti di Roero estate was established in the early 1950s, when the Olivero family, Daniela’s parents, bought the Valmenera farmhouse in Vezza d’Alba. They added the land and vineyards already owned in the Certuti region, better known as Sru, in the municipal districts of Canale and Monteu Roero, now a UNESCO World Heritage core zone.
The concept of authenticity is what Daniela and Luigi apply in their vineyard, in the cellar and in their lives. They have decided to believe in and use only native gape varieties: Nebbiolo, Arneis, Favorita and Barbera.
To vinify native grape varieties only, all as single grape wines. When you taste a wine, you should be able to taste the terroir. This is their idea of vinification.
They love and respect their vineyards and in 2016 they joined “The green experience”, (thegreenexperience.it), a certification for those who want to implement sustainable and integrated viticulture.
