Description

History

The Cascina Sciulun where the Conterno Franco winery is located is an ancient farm typical of the Piedmontese Langa architectural tradition. The farm is located in a hamlet of Bussia di Monforte d’Alba. The building was built in the mid-eighteenth century and expanded around the 1940s, and has always belonged to the Conterno family. Franco’s grandfather, Pietro, began to allocate the 18 hectares of land to the production of Nebbiolo, initially to be sold to other wineries in the area. The company has passed generationally first to Pietro’s son, Giacomo, and subsequently to Franco, who has been running the company together with his wife Vilma since 1995 and has given today’s approach to quality production. Today we also see the inclusion of the two new recruits, the sons of Franco Daniele and Andrea, who have brought a desire to do things and a breath of fresh air. The company produces with organic certification.

Brand

Conterno

The Giacomo Conterno winery was founded in 1900 in Monforte d'Alba by Giacomo himself, descendant of a family that has been producing wine since the beginning of the last century. A few years later, in 1912, his son Giovanni would bottle the first Barolo, a rarity at the time as the wine was mainly sold in barrels or demijohns. In 1924 the first vintage of Barolo Monfortino will be produced, so called in honor of the place of origin. 40 years later, in 1974, Cascina Francia in Serralunga d'Alba was purchased; this area is particularly suited to the production of Nebbiolo and Barbera grapes and agriculture will be set up according to the qualitative standards that have always been used.
