The Barbaresco production area covers four, highly devoted, municipalities in the Langhe area, in the province of Cuneo. They are Barbaresco, Alba (San Rocco Seno d’Elvio area), Neive and Treiso. The total area is 682.26 hectares with a total production of 5,458,054 kilogrammes of grapes. The town of Barbaresco, dominated by the ancient tower that has become the symbol of the town, is 10 km from Alba. The average altitude is about 300 metres above sea level. The Barbaresco area follows the path of the Tanaro river and is characterised by so-called "rocche", deep longitudinal fissures in the ground. The "Rocks of the Seven Brothers" in Treiso is also well-known.
We recommend a tour of the area starting from our wine cellar. If you are not in a hurry, go to Barbaresco by "climbing" on its hills: leaving behind Alba, pass through San Rocco Seno d'Elvio and then up the steep hairpin bends of provincial road number 3. You will be literally immersed in vineyards and at the end of this short journey, there is Barbaresco. An enchanting place, the guardian of a unique wine with the same name, overlooking the surrounding hills and overhanging the Tanaro river. Besides the natural beauty of the area, from an architectural point of view, the medieval tower is worth a visit. Known throughout the world, the Barbaresco wine comes from the Nebbiolo vine and is ages for two years. It is also, indirectly, the most important part of the local economy with visitors from around the world travelling to the small town to taste the wine on-site.
