Giacomo Conterno

The Langhe area of Northwest Italy’s Piedmont region is one of the most staggeringly beautiful wine regions in the world, home to the celebrated vineyards of Giacomo Conterno.

About

Third generation Roberto Conterno, now at the helm, has a palpable love and profound respect for his inherited terroir. In 1974, Giovanni Conterno, Roberto’s late father undertook the fortuitous and massively courageous investment in the fourteen-hectare monopole of Cascina Francia, in Serralunga d’Alba. At 400 metres above sea level, there are fourteen hectares here, 4.6ha of seriously good Barbera and 9.4ha of Nebbiolo (think outstanding Barolo) - a fabulous site.

In 2008, Roberto stamped his imprint on the family history, acquiring 3h of Cerretta, 1ha of very lovely, forward Barbera and 2ha of nebbiolo (Barolo!), inspired by the possibilities of an entirely different terroir. Then, in 2015, he added the stunning, highly prized 9 hectare vineyard Arione, next to Cascina Francia, to the family holdings. Advancing the estate for the second time, under Roberto’s tenure, this exhibits tremendous commitment to the future by the Conterno family and a major coup. We cannot wait to see what emerges here as the range, thus far, religiously honours a sense of place.
