The Fratelli Novara winery produces a very limited number of bottles, only 10,000 annually. With only 6 hectares of vineyard, cultivated in the municipality of Cisterna d’Asti, it is one of the smallest wineries in the Roero region.
An innovative spirit and respect for family traditions represent a constant commitment.
Through the guidance of their father Giuseppe Novara, sons Antonello and Riccardo introduced modern production processes.
The aim is to offer a quality product that reflects the family’s sincere and direct spirit.
You won’t find a ceremonious welcoming, large tasting halls or wines to be put to one side for the holidays. The philosophy is based on genuineness and the pleasure of offering wines to be savored on a daily basis.
From the 6 hectares of vineyard, divided among the rows of Bricco Forno, Fiorito, Sulpiano, Bricco Liberato and La Rabina Vineyards, six labels are produced
There are two white wines in the production: the Bricco Fiorito Terre Alfieri DOCG Arneis, a fruity, fresh and floral wine that goes well with all appetizers, fish dishes and white meats and also excellent as an aperitif and the White Wine Varietal Francesco vinified from Chardonnay grapes with intense, tropical aromas, soft in taste suitable for a good aperitif.

The winemaking processes for red and white wines are explained on the farm
Generations have passed since Grandfather Antonio used to deliver grapes to the Social Winery, keeping a few bottles for family and friends.
Treatments to maintain the health of the vines are very targeted and limited. The philosophy is simple: respect for nature, the land and the environment.
Between the rows of the Bricco Forno and Briccoliberato Vineyards, it is possible to witness the usual work and understand how soil type, climate, and soil texture characterize the wines of the area.
