OUR HISTORY

The story of our winery is that of our family, the Marenco family, firmly rooted in Dogliani, a village in the Langhe that has always been linked to viticulture.
From my great-grandfather Francesco to my grandfather Luigi, my parents Aldo and Bruna and now myself, Claudio, the long peasant tradition of attachment to the land has never been interrupted.
Always looking for the best exposure for the vineyards and constantly caring for the cultivation of the rows, without resorting to unnecessary forcing and polluting treatments, since 1991 we have been among the top producers in the area to obtain the organic suitability certification, today issued by Bioagricert.
The organic approach is the result of our agricultural and production philosophy that privileges the relationship with the territory and nature and, more generally, with the authenticity of food.
Currently, our company has 25 hectares of land, 12 of which are dedicated to vines (Dolcetto, Barbera, Favorita, Nebbiolo, Nascetta and Merlot). In all, we produce around 70–80,000 carefully-controlled bottles each year.
