Introducing one of the brightest young winemakers in Barolo. Based in the commune of La Morra, Alessandro Veglio crafts very small amounts of Dolcetto, Barbera, and three delicious wines based on Nebbiolo.  The Veglio family in Piedmont knows well the history of the area’s viniculture, having worked the land since the beginning of the last century,  cultivating, raising livestock and “inventing new ways of getting by every day.” Angelo Veglio, born in 1928, sought to escape the life of a sharecropper to own a vineyard, which he could not do until the 1960s in the township of La Morra. In 1979 the family acquired a shabby farmhouse called Cascina Nuova and some of its property with about five hectares of vineyards that contained cru appellations of Arborina and Rocche dell’Annunziata.  It is from this great family lineage that Alessandro formed the idea to branch out on his own.  

Alessandro made the decision early on to not use any herbicides or pesticides in the vineyards, instead using pheromones that “confuse the mating habits of insects and limit their reproduction”.  Grapes are exposed to natural wild yeasts with no innoculations and the wines are aged in a combination of smaller French barriques and larger tonneaux barrels.
