Back in the early Nineties, Osvaldo Viberti decided to take on the farm which was an heritage from his grandparents Assunta and Tistin. A decision taken after seeing again an old picture in which three generations were spot working together in the family’s cellar, in Serra dei Turchi.
Nowadays Osvaldo leads his farm, with the valuable help of his wife Carla and their sons Anna and Paolo. A family who is so strongly passionate about making excellent wines, as their ancestors were.
About ten hectars of vineyards are part of the farm, mainly cultivated with Nebbiolo vines (about 4.3), Barbera vines (about 3), Langhe Nebbiolo vines (about 0.7), Dolcetto vines (about 1) and Nascetta vines (about 1).
The winemaker Sergio Molino supports Osvaldo with his valuable advices. They both know well how many factors are involved in the process of producing excellent wines. Climate, ground composition, location of the vineyards, all the care to be taken until a perfect ripeness of the grapes, a lot of care and selection of the best grapes, the cellar-works. And last, but not least, a passion about quality wines.
