Over 140 Harvests

Currently the winery is the oldest still in activity in the area and is located in the original buildings and cellars that have hosted over 140 harvests. These cellars are where we vinify our grapes including, by acquired historical right, Barolo and Barbaresco.

The 19th century underground cellars, which are naturally at a constant temperature, are where the still wines and the Metodo Classico Alta Langa sparkling wines are refined.

Struggling for gravity

The original structure of the Enrico Serafino winery had been designed on three different levels to take advantage of height differences. In the past and even today, the winemaking process, from grape reception to bottling, is realised using gravity primarily and reducing pumping practices. This way, berries, their juices and wines are handled as gently as possible.

On the ground floor, we receive, select and transform the grapes.

On the first underground floor, we refine our red wines in oak barrels.

Finally, on the second underground floor, we age our wine in bottles.
