We rang ahead and had a lovely one on one tasting with the owner (who spoke great English) and her Mum. We tried 5 different wines including their lovely Barolo. There was no compunction to buy but we did so gladly. They were wonderful with our young children too.

We had the pleasure to shop at their house. The owner is super easy going, she offered us 5 kinds of their wines, Cheese, salami and bread. Cheap and of high quality.

A lucky break to come across this winery as you drive into Barolo. I hadn't made an appointment and it was Sunday but Sylvia who has great English was happy to accommodate. A nice flight of wines from Dolcetto, Barbera right through to the Barolo with grapes produced close by on the slopes up to La Morra (the highest point in Barolo). Family owned with only 7ha but a very personalized approach.

The tasting was fun with some good quality wine at good prices accompanied by Cheese. Sylvia was a pleasure to talk to and I would
Heartily recommend a visit if you're visiting the area.

We had a great visit today! Sylvia hosted us (great English) and Francesco was there to add his historical perspective. The wines were lovely and were accompanied by cheese, meat, and really tasty little cookies. The wine prices were very reasonable and the experience was outstanding. We will be ordering from her in the future and would definitely visit again.

We have visited this amazing place five times during the last 3 years. Our experiance has always been very positive. The wines are of the highest quality, second only to the kindness if the Borgogno family managing this place. The tour in the cantina is as original as it gets. The food they serve with the wine including Salumi and chease is just exceptional and the explanations are very knowledgeable. We look forward to coming back again!
