About the Winery Bruno Giacosa crafts some of the most prestigious Barolo and Barbaresco single-vineyard wines in Piemonte and is one of the world's most respected wine producers. He began working in the family business at the age of 15 and represents the third generation of his family to make wine in the Langhe. Initially, Bruno Giacosa only purchased grapes from select vineyards and a network of quality-minded growers with whom he forged a close relationship. By the late 1980's, Giacosa's search for the best vineyard sources initiated the process of acquiring vineyards that consistently produced some of the finest expressions of Nebbiolo. Bruno Giacosa's winemaking philosophy combines a respect for tradition and conservative winemaking with the selected use of modern technology to obtain the best expression of each vineyard's terroir. He is convinced that great wines begin in the vineyard with the production of grapes cultivated by experienced growers. This belief pushes him to improve quality with every harvest. In the cellar, the goal is to produce a wine that maintains its identity from vine to bottle, so winemaking methods are therefore traditional and in full respect of the grape's typical characteristics.
