Great family run winery. We showed up without a reservation and were able to do a tasting but a reservation is recommended. We tasted 5 wines, meats, and cheeses. Definitely worth a visit!

They treated us very well and provided a nice spread of meats and cheeses with our tasting. We thought their wines were some of the best after a busy day of tastings in Barolo. Small quaint family run experience, with great wine and decent prices.
