A story that
begins in 1234
in Santa Vittoria d’Alba
An old farmhouse, but above all a valley, which echoes in the history of Santa Vittoria d'Alba
The name "Val di Spinso" has always accompanied the history of Santa Vittoria d'Alba, with origins that go back to Roman times, as can be deduced from findings from the last century.
It is understandable how that plot of land already enticed at the time: protected by a natural amphitheater of hills, near a spring and next to the ancient road that connected Asti and Pollenzo, it was in an enviable position in which to take root.
The first written document dates back to 1234 and refers to the sale of an "arable land" in the "Valle de Spins", a land passed from hand to hand between the great families of the area in the years to come.
The transition to residential land came in 1570, when Giovanni Francesco Romagnano had a farmhouse built there, which in 1589 his brother Giovanni Lodovico sold to the notary Pietro Paruzza di Montaldo for a thousand scudi.
Starting from 1838, Valdispinso became royal property in the hands of King Carlo Alberto of Savoy, together with the castle of Santa Vittoria d'Alba.
This illustrious owner was responsible for the restructuring of the farmhouse, which took place in 1849, with which the estate's winemaking process was also started, perpetuated to the point of making it one of the leading agricultural realities of the Langhe and Roero.

The Valdispinso farm completes its offer with 5 representative labels of the best Roero wines
The typical wines of these hills are produced in 7 hectares of vineyards, respecting the land and the Roero wine tradition.
Guests interested in learning more about the Langhe food and wine culture are allowed, upon reservation, to visit the historic cellars and taste the company’s wines accompanied by local cheeses and meats.
There are 3 red wines in the cellar: Barbera d’Alba DOC, Segreto and Spirito Rosso.
The Barbera, with an intense and purple color, spends a period of 8 months in barrel and a further 4 of refinement in the bottle; the result is a broad scent and a warm, harmonious and generous palate.
The Segreto comes from the selection of the best Barbera vineyards. This process makes it stand out for the breadth of its scent, with notes of plum, blackberry and spices.
The Spirito Rosso is a pure Nebbiolo wine, harmonious, elegant and decidedly dry. It is an ideal match for truffles, game and cheeses.
The rosé and the white
The production is completed by a rosé wine from Nebbiolo grapes, Rosa Vittoria, and a Roero Arneis DOCG.
Both to be served cold from the fridge, they are ideal for aperitifs or with fish.
Moscato d’Asti DOCG Santa Vittoria d’Alba sub-area
