Adriano Marco e Vittorio
The Adriano family is a classic example of a family-run farm, a true tradition in Piedmont.
In the heart of the Langa, in Alba, in the hamlet of San Rocco Seno d'Elvio, the Adriano Marco and Vittorio winery cultivates and vinifies only its own grapes, with the aim of producing wines that best interpret the 'terroir'.
The winemaking tradition of this family dates back to the beginning of the 20th century, when grandfather Giuseppe, a sharecropper, began cultivating vines. The work continued with his son Aldo, with whom he bought a small estate and together they planted the new vines.
Today, in turn, grandsons Marco and Vittorio cultivate their love for their land by growing the family business: it was the 1994 grape harvest when they decided to vinify their own grapes with the first bottles bearing the Adriano label.
The company currently has a total surface area of 50 hectares, divided between 10 hectares of hazelnuts, 10 of woods and fallow land and 30 hectares planted with Barbaresco Nebbiolo, Barbera, Dolcetto, Freisa, Sauvignon Blanc and Moscato Bianco grapes.
