Azienda Agricola Pelissero is a family-run vine-growing estate located in
the district of Treiso, in the heart of the Barbaresco zone.
Many gradual changes have been performed by the successive
generations of the Pelissero family, who transformed their business from grape growing and selling begun by Giovanni Pelissero, into winemaking of all their estate-grown grapes.
The first bottles of our own wine date back to 1960 and were produced by Luigi
Pelissero, whose work was followed by his son, Oenologist Giorgio who
after finishing his studies, decided to work full time at the winery.
The Pelissero family takes care of all the winery work; from pruning the vines
to marketing the wine.
The estate consists of twenty hectares of vineyards
which yield a total of 80,000 to 100,000 (depending on the year) bottles of wine, namely Dolcetto d'Alba from two vineyards (Munfrina and Augenta), Barbera d'Alba Piani, Barbaresco, Barbaresco Vanotu, Grignolino, Favorita,Freisa and Nebbiolo.
It takes passion, commitment to the land and hard work in the vineyards
and cellar, to always endeavour to make high quality wines, the
only way we know to get real satisfaction. Research in the vineyards and, successively, in the cellar never stops here, and we hope that this will bring about further improvements on our wines.
