Wine Producer in Barolo

Business Hours

Closing Day


Along the road that leads from Barolo to La Morra, since 2000 the Sylla Sebaste cellar has been producing classic Piedmont wines of refined quality.

Erected right on the summit of the hill San Pietro delle Viole, which overlooks a wonderful view of vineyards and the whole of the Alba Langa, the cellar has taken on through the years, as its symbol, the effigy of the splendid 14th century chapel that stands in front of it: San Pietro delle Viole’s chapel.

The cellar is owned by the Merlo family and is led with great passion by Fabrizio Merlo with valuable collaboration from his oenologist Luca Caramellino.

The Wines

A production dedicated to traditional varieties such as Nebbiolo, Dolcetto, Barbera and Freisa.

Its seven property hectares are all located within the municipality of Barolo in prestigious Bussia and Bricco Viole.

The Sylla Sebaste wines are: the three Barolo, two of which represent the Bussia cru and Bricco delle Viole, the Nebbiolo, the Barbera d’Alba and the Langhe Rosso Syllabo.

The Barbera d’Asti comes from the Costigliole d’Asti vineyards, along with the whites: the still whites Roero Arneis and Gavi, the sweet Moscato d’Asti and the Classic Method Sparkling wine La Sylla.
