    Owned and managed by 5th generation Abbona family, Marchesi di Barolo is a family business with a history stretching back over 200 years to 1807. As with many prestigious wineries, the founders came from aristocratic and well-connected families who knew a good thing when they found it. With the right land ('terrior'), climate, grape varieties and know-how, Marchesi di Barolo became and still is one of the top producers who, with the help and contribution of vintners selected over the years, produce some of greatest wines in Barolo and the Langhe region.

    Barolo and Langhe are also located in a very advantageous area being protected by the Alps on three sides. This results in an exceptionally good climate for viticulture which, when combined with the soil composition, creates the perfect conditions for making fine wines.
