Our family has a long history of grape cultivation and making wine. Our origins date back to the early 1900’s, almost 10,000 kilometers away, in the picturesque village of Morbegno, in northern Italy.
The tradition of growing grapes, began in our family when Nonno Gabriele, the father of our Winemaker Camillo, inherited from his father, Pietro, a vineyard in his native Morbegno. As a result of this, our family was able to create a bond with the land we inherited and learned to produce wine in the traditional way, using the benefits of nature: the sun, the earth, wood, water and rich grape varieties, which predominantly included Nebbiolo, Barbera and Pignola varieties.
The story of our winery, began in the heart of Baja’s Guadalupe Valley over 15 years ago, when we first begun to produce wines that came from grapes harvested from our own vineyards, for our family and friends. These wines were given as gifts to our Italian family when we would visit them and were entered to compete on various occasions in the Feria del Nebbiolo in Italy.
It was not until 2013, that our family finally made the decision to offer our wines to the public in response to the overwhelming support and enthusiasm that was received from all of those who had tasted our wines. The reason behind our wines is to be enjoyed and shared with family and friends and provide a reason to meet and enjoy good company.
