Winery Info/ Brand
When we read an old document from 1901 we are overwhelmed by emotion. It’s about the property’s transfer of the Mariondino plot, the first vineyard bought by our grandfather Gaspare Parusso. We think that everything goes started at that precise moment.Few years later in 1925, the family bought the “Rovella” farmhouse where our cellar now rises up above the Rocche vineyard.It was in 1971 that our father Armando started to produce wine from his grapes and put the wine in bottles with his own label. Before that, most of the production was sold in bulk and the rest was used by family and friends.In 1986 Marco finished enological school in Alba, and three years later, in 1989, our father bought the Munie vineyard in the Bussia hamlet. At that moment, probably without fully realizing it, we were beginning to change the history of our family; from a family of farmers we were becoming a family of vintners, but always deeply treasuring the connection with our origins.Thereafter we embarked on a long road, a path of devotion, work, and passion, with a constant desire to improve experimenting with new methods, while discovering at the same time old traditions, forgotten arts, combining technological progress and traditions in order to reach our objective. Our goal is to produce very elegant, fine, well-balanced wines with a strong identity that reveal all the experiences, lessons, and values we have learned over the course of time.
