The winery is located in Alba, the capital of the Langhe, on the eastern side of the border with the municipality of Diano d’Alba.
In 1959 Luigi’s father, Enrico, moved to the farmhouse called Pontepietra, surrounded by 8 hectares of land, of which only one was used for vines.
In 1968 Luigi, at the age of twenty-two, took over the baton and planted 5 hectares of vineyards and in 1978 he began to have his own label and to bottle the wines, which were previously only sold in demijohns.
The birth of two sons, Roberto and Fabrizio, brings new strength to the winery, and the two boys apply themselves to work in the company from an early age.
Over time Luigi and his children have steered the winery towards a more sustainable and environmentally friendly production, since 2009 renouncing the use of herbicides in the vineyard and resorting to purely organic fertilization.
Today the company has 15 hectares of vineyards where the typical varieties of Langa are grown, and Luigi still welcomes those who want to come and visit him in the cellar to share his greatest passion: love for the land.
The company produces the typical wines of the area, but also offers innovative labels
Luigi Drocco was an avant-garde and far-sighted producer, starting to produce the whites Arneis and Chardonnay as early as the 1980s, when they still did not have the DOC designation and few could predict their potential.
Today the company offers all the most representative wines of the territory, both white and red, and there is no lack of particular and exclusive experiments.
The wine that best describes Fabrizio and Roberto’s desire to experiment is Alba, an assembly of Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Barbera, the most representative grape varieties of Alba.
Alba obtained the DOC in 2010, and is a rather rare wine, produced by few other winemakers.
The Green Experience
The company joined in 2016 as a pilot winery this Coldiretti certification, which aims to give visibility and recognize those wineries that practice integrated production, attentive to environmental sustainability and landscape protection.
