About Marchesi di Barolo

Since 2006, the winery has been under the direction of the family of Ernesto Abbona which, with more than 60 percent of the shares, has a majority control. This has permitted an increase in productivity and refocusing of commercial strategy which is the reason behind the growth of the business in recent years. The operating principle behind the business is a firm conviction of and commitment to the indisputable quality of the wines produced in this region, as characterized by a number of indigenous vines of great prestige. In fact, the composition of the soil in the lower regions of Piedmont is quite unique.

Marchesi di Barolo can be considered a medium-sized winery: It controls approximately 110 hectares of vineyards from which it produces approximately 1.5 million bottles of wine. The winery produces Barolo, Barbaresco, Nebbiolo d’Alba, Barbera d’Alba, Dolcetto d’Alba, Roero Arneis, Gavi, Moscato d’Asti e Brachetto d’Acqui.

Concerning the future, the enthusiastic proprietors of Marchesi di Barolo plan to further intensify and deepen the already close ties with the estate’s vineyard holdings, while at the same time continuing to increase the presence of its products in the best sales venues and consumer markets throughout the world, with a special emphasis on the high-quality restaurant sector. The future of Marchesi di Barolo is in good hands: The continuity of its mission guaranteed by a new, younger generation already engaged in the pursuit of specially targeted courses of study.
