Azienda Vitivinicola SOBRERO


 

The Azienda Vitivinicola Sobrero was established in 1940 by Francesco Sobrero, father of the current owners, Settimo and Pierfranco. It is located in Castiglione Falletto, heart of the Barolo area. It was on these hills, which have for many years been a choice zone for vine-growing, where Francesco dedicated a life of work, passion and sacrifice to his vineyards, producing the prestigious wines that can only be obtained from this land. As a testimony to his hard work, Francesco Sobrero has left behind, among other things, the tools for working in the cellars which his sons still use today, continuing to produce wine in a zone covering 16 hectares of vineyards.

 

The vineyard slopes, among the most fertile in the Langhe, are home to rows and rows of vineyards representing the combination of nature, with the hard toil of man, and where the countryside seems to burst into life when the swollen bunches of ripe grapes are ready for picking in the late summer.

 

By harvest time, the grapes are ready to give up their precious juice which, following various processes, becomes ready to show its true potential. The rituals of past times, even the famous trading process, have had to give way to more modern methods which are far better adapted to produce the best results. Mechanical systems – which are no less delicate than traditional methods –are used to separate the stalks and must. The wines which are not destined to be matured are kept in steel tanks where the temperature can be planned out and controlled based upon the needs of each particular wine. Those wines which are destined for a longer existence are conserved in traditional Slavonic oak barrels.

 

In each case, whether it be Barolo, Nebbiolo or Dolcetto, the care and love shown by the Sobrero’s towards their wine has never changed.
