Established in 1908, Giacomo Conterno is a renowned family wine estate based in Piedmont. Roberto Conterno, the grandson of Giacomo has been running the estate since 2003. Until the 1970’s, the estate purchased fruit from growers to make its wines. Beginning in 1974, Giacomo Conterno began to acquire vineyards including the famous “Francia” vineyard in Serralunga d’Alba. The vineyards are organically managed and the wines are made using traditional methods with wild yeasts, temperature controlled fermentation, long maceration and ageing in large Slovenian oak botti. The estate is most famous for its prestigious age-worthy Barolos, Cascina Francia and Monfortino Riserva.
