Company History

The Barale Brothers Winery, (Azienda Agricola Fratelli Barale), was founded in 1870 when Francesco Barale began producing Barolo and other wines typical of the Langa region. Francesco owned vineyards in several local areas, including Castellero, Costa di Rose, Preda and Bussia in Monforte, as can be clearly seen on period maps. Sergio Barale, present owner and producer, carefully attends to every aspect of the cultivation of his 20 hectares of vineyards which are situated in some of the Langa’s most historically important hills.

It is in the vineyard that the quality of a wine takes shape and our winery’s philosophy is to seek quality from the vines – during every vintage, not only the sun-drenched summers when it is far easier to produce great wines. It is during the more difficult years that the skills of green pruning and thinning the bunches are brought to bear, ensuring smaller quantities of top quality fruit. The Nebbiolo grape harvest continues throughout October: in fact, it seems that the grape’s name derives from the word for mist, ‘nebbia’, often a feature of Langa autumns. The fruit is picked by hand with careful selection of the bunches and is taken to the winery, a 19th- century country manor in Barolo’s historical centre. Here, new vinification and bottling areas have been built on to the manor’s historical underground cellars. The crushing and fermentation of the grapes is carried out using up-to-the-minute technology but traditions are fully respected.

It is possible to visit the Cellar from Monday to Friday, 9 am-1 pm. During weekends and holidays is better to call.
