About the winery

Azienda Agricola Monchiero is a century-old family winery that has been producing wine independently since the 1950s. The winery is located in the famous Barolo area. Currently, the family business is run by Vittorio (father), Daniela (mother), Luca (son) and Stefano (son). Monchiero is known for its unique range of red wines, including the famous Barolo, Langhe Nebbiolo and Barbera D'Alba. In addition to these red wines, they also produce a refreshing Roero Arneis and a dry Moscato. Monchiero's wines are highly recognizable and are characterized by their fruity flavors and elegant character.




In the heart of the Barolo region, in Castiglione Falletto, the Monchiero family's wine journey began in the 1950s, thanks to the work of brothers Remo and Maggiorino, who at the time lived in the nearby village of La Morra. Initially they only sold grapes, but soon they decided to make their own wine. Thus began the adventure, and in the 1970s the wine was bottled and marketed: the "gold" of the Langa - Barolo for abroad (USA) and young wines for the Italian market.


The family

In the 1980s, Vittorio Monchiero, Maggiorino's son, graduated from the University of Viticulture in Alba. Gradually, he became increasingly involved in the business that had been expanded by his father and uncle. After his marriage to Daniela in the 1990s, he took charge of the wine cellar and marketing. He traveled the world, attending trade fairs and introducing innovations in traditional methods. Production grew steadily, thanks in part to the purchase of excellent terroirs. Vittorio and Daniela had two sons together, Luca and Stefano. Currently Daniela focuses on their bed and breakfast, while Vittorio concentrates on winemaking.



The new generation

In 2017, Luca, Vittorio's eldest son, joined the family business, while his brother Stefano chose to attend agricultural science high school to continue the centuries-old family tradition: that of making Barolo. Luca focuses mainly on tending and maintaining the vineyards, while Stefano, in addition to helping the vines grow, is also responsible for designing the labels.
