The Domain: Punset is an innovator when it comes to organic wine. Inheriting the estate in 1982, Marina Marcarino is a fifth-generation winemaker, and she took her estate to the future whilst preserving age-old traditions.

She transformed all 20 hectares of her land into a fully organic vineyard during a time when major producers of Barolo and Barbaresco were abandoning tradition to compete commercially. Instead of following the trend, she struck out on her own and made wines that resonated with her past and passions. Known for Italy's first certified organic Barbaresco, Marina continues to show the world that you can preserve tradition and think of the future simultaneously.
