1834, the great-grandfather Giacomo made out our farm of a small cottage on charming Langa hills: at present, it is lovely run by Giuseppe the father, Carla the mother, together with their sons Flavio and Franco.
Farm is made up of two farmsteads: the paternal one is located on Canova hill where cellar and their Vineyards are situated as well.
