Abrigo Winery: An Italian Classic
Italian Winery and vineyard Abrigo is currently expanding its horizons, reinforcing its market penetration, and achieving ever greater success on an international scale.
The Giovanni Abrigo winery is located at Diano d’Alba, a village with a long history of production of fine Dolcetto wine, but also of the typical hazelnuts of Piedmont, both specialties of the house.
Giovanni Abrigo has grown, for over thirty years, the famous “Tonda”, a high quality hazelnut, an indispensable ingredient for the production of the famous nougat of Alba and not merely this. The hazelnut orchards extend over some twenty-five acres (ten hectares) and produce approximately 25,000 tons of hazelnuts per year. Run by one sole family, the winery contains the traditions and the knowledge of the “ancients of wine” are very important for the Abrigo family because they are the guardians of the true secrets of this angle of the earth and know how to listen to, and understand, its soil.
The estate is composed by 27 acres (11 hectares) of vineyards and produces approximately 60,000 bottles of wine per year. The focus of the winery is on tipicity and territorial identity, cultivating grape varieties to be used for DOC and DOCG wines, respecting very strict production rules in terms of yield per acre. The estate is currently expanding its horizons, reinforcing its market penetration, and achieving ever greater success on an international scale.
Recently, the brand held a press wine dinner at Buona Terra, with the help of Chef Denis Lucchi, to push forth wines that represent the best of what Abrigo Wines have to offer.
These included wine labels like the Barolo, Dolcetto di Diano d’Alba, and Barbera d’Alba.
The press dinner let Chef Lucchi showcase the best of what Buona Terra has to offer, in a bid to elevate the flavours and tastes of the wines from the Abrigo Winery.
