The Domain: To understand their history, you must return to the beginning of the 1900s in the village of Ciotto near La Morra. In this cluster of houses, the Veglio family has been dedicated to working the land for generations. To be a farmer in the Langhe meant bending over the vines, cultivating orchards and gardens, raising livestock, and inventing new ways of getting by every day. It was a difficult life. Angelo Veglio, born in 1928, would pass the winters by visiting the farmhouses as a “masacrin,” or a sort of butcher on a house call, particularly for the preparation of salami. During the summer, after working in the fields he would travel to the market in Canale, where he sold the few peaches his orchards produced. Angelo had a dream: leave the life of a sharecropper and working in agriculture to dedicate himself to making wine; and purchase vineyards and bottle wine under his name, using native Langhe grapes—above all, Nebbiolo, in which he had the foresight to recognize quality and potential.

"We were born and grew up in the hills of Barolo: a territory that has sustained us, whose people have helped us grow up, and whose wine we have fallen in love with, to which we dedicate our lives and our passion".
