Crushing & Pressing

After crushing and breaking the grape berries, the juice, pulp, and seeds is allowed to flow with the skin and stems of the fruit. Pressing the freshly picked Nebbiolo grapes is commonly the next logical step in the wine production process that separates the juice from the solids.

What Is the History of Barolo?

Growing wine and winemaking has a long history in northern Italy.  Piedmontese wine was originally sweet and rustic until the last century, then something changed. The famous red wine as we know it today, was created by a count called Camillo Benzo. With the help of French winemaking expert Louis Oudart, they started fermenting the red wines to become dry or dryer than before. Cavour also worked with Pier Francesco Staglieno, who pioneered the use of bottled and closed fermentation tanks, making the drink less susceptible to oxidation and high levels of acidity.

What Is Barolo wine?

Barolo is a fine red wine made from the Nebbiolo grape. Nebbiolo grapes come from the beautiful mountains of Piedmont in northern Italy. These are the finest vineyards situated on the slopes. 

The Barolo red wines made from these vines are incredibly complex and structured and are among the most suitable wines to store long term.
