Organic – prime vineyard sites – family owned
From their base in the heart of the Langhe & Roero regions, the Ceretto family produce organic wines that are acknowledged as being among the highest quality in Piemonte. Over recent years they have steadily grown their estate in an effort to be able to be more selective in their production in the prestigious DOCG areas of Barolo and Barbaresco.
The project was initially established by brothers Bruno & Marcello. Their father had been a winemaker, choosing however to buy fruit to vinify rather than tend to his own vines. They recognised that the key to premium wines from Piemonte was the quality of fruit available and took the decision to begin investing in prime vineyard sites. Their father was less than impressed, suggesting that land purchases were a waste of valuable capital. However, as time has passes and the wines of Ceretto have been recognised the world over, it is clear to see that the decision and foresight of Bruno & Marcelo has been vindicated.
