Giorgio Conterno and his sister Marisa produce exemplary wines from their 7 hectares of vineyards located in the Ginestra growing area in the Monforte d'Alba. Formed in Helvetian geological age, the soil is mainly limestone and clay on a slope with a gradient of approximately 25-30%. The average altitude is 350 metres. 5 hectares are given over to the production of Nebbiolo destined for Barolo while the remaining two are planted with Barbera.
Recent investments in the winery have included new cellars installed in 1997 and quality is now at an all time high. The Barolos are renowned for their complexity and depth of flavour while the Barbera is fast becoming one of the most distinctive wines being produced in the region today.
