Winegrower in Vezza d’Alba
Fabrizio’s company is small, but great for goals and ambitions.
The vineyard area has 5 hectares of vineyards, which allow family management and, above all, attention to the smallest details of the entire production cycle.
In the vineyard nature grows lively and luxuriant: Fabrizio does not use herbicides and undertakes to keep chemical treatments to a minimum.
Always with a view to respecting the environment, the winery is powered by green and clean energy, thanks to solar panels that eliminate the need to use gas.
Every year about 25,000 bottles are produced, all vinified with healthy grapes and with great care, from fermentation to bottling.
The production is personally supervised by Fabrizio, from grapes to bottle.
In the labels produced you can find the aromas and flavors of the territory.
To age his wines, Fabrizio uses only barriques.
The choice falls on needs dictated by the small size of his cellar, but this does not exclude a long period of experimentation and experience that convinced him to continue on this path.
The wines aged in barriques are balanced, elegant and tell the story of the grapes with which they are produced without focusing on the barrel roasting.
To test the result, during the tasting it will be possible to examine Nebbiolo d’Alba DOC Para’Di’ and Roero DOCG Colla.
Both vinified with Nebbiolo grapes, grown in soils with different exposures, they follow the same steps in barriques, for the same period and in barrels of the same age. The result, however, is extremely different.
Alongside these bottles, Fabrizio also produces Barbera, Roero Arneis, passito and a Metodo Classico of Nebbiolo grapes.

Visits & Tastings
There is only one way to find out if the choice of the barrique is right: taste the wines with Fabrizio.
The visit begins with a walk in the Colla and Sergentin vineyards. Here the view is stunning and sweeps over narrow gorges and steep slopes typical of the Roero, up to the Abbey of Superga, in Turin.
You’ll then continue in the cellar, in the fermentation and aging rooms, to learn about the production process and aging.
At the end of the visit, you’ll move on to the guided tasting, during which Fabrizio tells the story of each label: you can choose between different types of tasting, based on which product interests you the most.

Roero, a wild land, less touched by tourism than Langhe
Fabrizio Battaglino’s cellar is located in Vezza d’Alba, with vineyards growing on one of the highest hills of the Roero.
From here one can see clearly the difference between this territory, still more or less “untouched”, and the clean hills of the Langhe, which after decades of monoculture have little left of the wilderness.
The total respect of the territory in Fabrizio’s work is in part to be connected to the peculiarity of this area, whose features are in the eyes of the producer an asset to be preserved at all costs.
Picnic & walk in the vineyards
To pay homage to the splendor of the land owned and share it with others, Fabrizio offers a signposted route that will lead you among bricchi, historic vineyards and ancient trees.
You will find colored poles that indicate the different points of interest, and colored “bunse” (the containers in which verdigris was once made) to mark the way.
Aperitif in the vineyard (min. 2 people) → € 25 / € 30 per person
1 bottle of Roero Arneis Bastia or Nebula Nature Metodo Classico, breadsticks, salami, tuma and hazelnuts.
Picnic in the vineyard (min. 2 people) → 40 € per person
