Vittorio Monchiero (pronounced “Mon-kee-eh-ro“) owns 25 acres of vineyard spread throughout the communes of Castiglione Falletto, La Morra, Alba, Roddi and Verduno in Piedmont. The small winery located in Castiglione Falletto was established in the 13th century and purchased by Vittorio’s father and uncle in 1954. Vittorio was trained at the renowned oenological institute in Alba and remains committed to the region’s traditional practices opposed to the flashier international style that has taken root in many of Piedmont’s cellars over the last few decades. Favoring long maceration periods with skin contact and aging in large Slavonian oak casks, Vittorio’s wines loyally express the flavors and aromas that make Piedmont’s wines unique.
