The young and promising Ghëddo winery in La Morra took off in 2014 from the initiative and ambition of two young men from Milan, Giovanni and Mattia, who are respectively the agricultural/wine-making arm and the commercial/administrative soul of the winery.
The fact that they do not have ancient blazons supported by an articulated history has not intimidated them; in fact, they base their heralds on knowledge of the territory, regard for the vineyard ecosystem and the production of excellent wine by combining commitment with fun.
At first devoted to the study of the classics and anthropology, they finally uncovered “ghëddo” among the rigorous geometries of rows of vines in the Langhe and in wine production.
But what does ghëddo mean? The word comes from the Piedmontese dialect and can be translated as the impetus, the personal style, the witty tone, the stamp of authenticity that a person, or a group of people can give to a certain action, be it artistic, professional, social, everyday.
A kind of Bergsonian élan vital that expresses itself in the will to do, in the spontaneity of an intuition, and that Giovanni and Mattia confirm can be read immediately in someone’s face the moment you meet them.
The winery opens its doors to visitors and enthusiasts who wish to taste the fruit of this authentic and elegant enthusiasm.
Ghëddo's variety of wines includes a choice of five products: Dolcetto, Bianco, Barbera, Nebbiolo and Barolo
The Ghëddo winery has its own vineyards in La Morra and some also in Roddino, Roero and in the Tortona area.
The wines produced are the mirror image of the vintage, which unfolds starting from a painstaking and wise work in the vineyard through a traditional method and without the use of chemical fertilizers, up to the most careful cleanliness in the cellar, a characteristic that is also expressed in the glass translating into wines with a clean and clear scent.
Every minutia and detail, like any task, is personally taken care of by Giovanni and Mattia: from the pruning up to the bottle crates produced from recycled wood.
The fruits of this work and dedication are five wines typical of the area
Barolo 2017 → made from a selection of grapes from the vineyards of La Morra at 350 a.s.l., whose alcoholic fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel barrels. Aged for two years in 15 hl French oak barrels and then in the bottle.
Dolcetto 2020 → obtained from a vineyard in the town of Roddino that is about 60 years old and aged for 6 months in stainless steel barrels and then in the bottle.
Nebbiolo 2019 → whose skins are left to macerate for 10 days in contact with the wine and which is then aged in small 3rd and 4th passage wooden barrels, then in steel casks and subsequently in the bottle.
White wine 2020 → Blend of three grape varieties in equal parts: nascetta obtained from calcareous marls in the town of Novello, Arneis obtained from sandy soils located in Roero and Timorasso obtained from clay and limestone soils located in Carezzano.
Barbera d’Alba 2020 → grapes obtained from marly-sandy soil located in the town of Govone with southern exposure, and aged for 6 months in 20hl French oak barrels.
