Winery Info/ Brand
Vallebelbo was founded in 1956 by the determination and pride of a group of about seventy vine growers who were strongly motivated to escape from the underdeveloped agricultural world in comparison to the fast rising industrial age of those days. The cellars was equipped with the basic technologies of those days, did not transform more than 800 to 1000 tons of Moscato grapes per year, but in the 70's they had already built a second plant suitable for red winemaking. The company continued to grow bigger, and at the beginning of the 80's, the construction of a revolutionary wine press plant puts Vallebelbo in a leading position for the transformation of Moscato grapes for the production of Asti Spumante.
Region Info/ Origin
The name Piedmont comes from medieval Latin Pedemontium or Pedemontis, meaning "at the foot of the mountains". Surrounded on three sides by the Alps, including Monviso, where the Po rises, and Monte Rosa, the geography of Piedmont is also broadly coincident with the upper part of the drainage basin of the river Po, which rises from the slopes of Monviso in the west of the region and is Italy's largest river. Piedmont benefits from the excellent viticulture and receives good temperate climate suitable for growing quality white grape varietals.
