FONTANAFREDDA

Historic winery nestled in the charming hills of the Langhe, Fontanafredda was born from the estates of Roggeri Giacomo in Serralunga d'Alba, then registered in the private patrimony of Vittorio Emanuele II, King of Sardinia, in 1858. However, it was Emanuele Guerrieri, Count of Mirafiore, son of the king, who began trading twenty years later, in 1878, thanks to his strong passion, spirit of initiative and foresight. Today Fontanafredda has about 122 hectares, of which 84 are cultivated with vineyards and divided among the most prestigious municipalities of the Barolo area: Serralunga d'Alba, Barolo and Diano d'Alba. The estate is also formed by the historic cellars, the Villa Reale and a large nature reserve. Today Fontanafredda belongs to the Free Wine Association, a group of 12 wine producers and 1 distillery, united by the intent to develop sustainable agriculture, in combination with a continuous research process aimed at the preservation of nature and the minimum intervention in the vineyard and in the cellar: not least are the experiments of Fontanafredda aimed at limiting the use of sulfur dioxide. The vineyards of the winery live in a living and varied ecosystem, the soils are worked with the technique of controlled grassing, without any use of chemical fertilizers and herbicides, but only organic substances. A company that still today continues to make the history of Piedmont
