The company was set up in 1974 by Ernesto Dellapiana on his family’s eighteenth century estate. Having grown up with a passion for the land and wine-growing, in 1973 he decided to leave the city – and an established paper-making business – to follow the great love of his life: the land of the Langa, and its hard-to-work hillsides. Over the years the winery’s proprietor has dedicated himself to extending and improving the company and its products in terms of both quantity and quality, making it – with its 90 acres – one of the largest, and most interesting and unquestionably important wine estates in the Barbaresco-growing area.
In the last years to the job of the Proprietor is added the work of Jole and Enrico Dellapiana, the daughter and the son of Ernesto, who are actively entered into the activities of the firm. Jole has begun to deal particularly herself with the commercial and bookkeeping management of the firm; Enrico, graduated in Enologia to the university of Turin, has begun to deal himself of the technical management of the agricultural firm and the Wine cellar, keeping track of all the problems involved in the production side and also following the net sale in Italy and abroad.
