Loazzolo

Loazzolo, an isolated village built on the hills, was called Lupatiolum (place of the wolves) by inhabitants of the near valley, who broke the slopes up to model the sole with stone platforms.

This place, though, hides the most precious treasure of Langhe, an amber-coloured nectar, which contains every flower, herb and smelling of this hill.

They call it Loazzolo wine, to emphasize the relationship of this village with people and the most famous Italian raisin wine.

This is a small centre, with old characters, narrow alleys surrounded by stone walls, the Ranaboldo house, where they organize cultural displays and art exhibitions, the moscato wide vines, from the most fine part of which they produce the precious raisin wine.

History

Loazzolo has been owned by Aleramo – the legendary founder of the march including the most of southern Piedmont -, who gave it as inheritance to one of his sons.

Then it became a property of Bonifacio del Vasto, then to the Del Carretto family, and later to Guglielmo di Busca.

In 1703 Loazzolo became a part of the Savoia reign, and was given the status of marquisate.
