Broccardo is a family-run winery located in Monforte d’Alba and managed today by Filippo, Laura and Federica Broccardo.

Since 2010, the three siblings have been carrying on the production philosophy handed down to them by their parents and great-grandparents: a great sense of appreciation for the land and the use of vineyard work techniques that always respect the land.

The parents had been marketing the grapes since the 1970s, but it was not until the three brothers joined the company that full production began, with a great tendency to export mainly to Asia, Europe and the United States.

The property consists of 13 hectares under vine that extend between the communes of Monforte d’Alba with the San Giovanni and Bricco San Pietro cru, Barolo with the Paiagallo cru and Novello, with the Ravera cru.

The production method

Winemaking is focused on the purity of each wine with a special effort to preserve the fruity scents, without altering their peculiarities, so that the characteristics of the Langa land can be perceived.

The winery also follows EU directives (Integrated Production Technical Laws No. 214), which require the practice of grassing and the containment of treatments; since 2016, the wine has been made using viticultural and oenological techniques with low environmental impact.

The Wines

The wines of the Broccardo winery are born from a great passion for wine and careful selection of grapes.

Production is focused on Barolo DOCG, but Langhe DOC Nebbiolo, Barbera d ‘Alba DOC, Dolcetto d’Alba DOC, Langhe Arneis DOC and Langhe Rosato DOC are also produced.

The vineyards are located in 3 of the towns most suited to Barolo production, namely Monforte d’Alba, Barolo and Novello, and cover about 13 hectares with southern and southwestern exposure.

The composition of the soils on which the vineyards have been planted is characterized by clay, tuff, sand and silt, left by the retreat of the Padano Sea about 16 million years ago: the alternation of these layers means that the vines give wines of excellent finesse, structure and elegance.

The scrupulous use of wood is evident, favoring Slavonian and French oak for the aging of Barolo, Nebbiolo and Barbera.

For the production of wines with more fruity and fresh characters such as Dolcetto, Arneis and Rosato, the use of steel is preferred instead.

The training system used in the vineyards is the guyot system, with sustainable practices of vineyard work.
