is a great privilege to have the company of Aldo Vacca from produttori an engaging orator and advocate for Barbaresco and all things Piedmontese.
It was 1958, when the priest of the village of Barbaresco gathered together nineteen small growers and founded the Produttori del Barbaresco. The first three vintages were made in the church basement. Today the winery is located right across the square from the church. Currently the coop has 56 members with Aldo at the helm.
Produttori is that rare thing: a cooperative that values quality over quantity. In In great vintages, nine single vineyard Barbaresco’s are produced within the boundaries of the village of Barbaresco: Asilli, Rabaja, Pora, Montestefano, Orvello, Pagé, Montefico, Moccagatta and Rio Sordo.
