Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
Roberto Voerzio roots himself in the vineyards of Piemonte. Working beside both his father and grandfather, the beauty of La Morrainspired Roberto to pioneer for new pastures. Since age 20, the young man was aware of the prestige that came with his region, as well as the untapped potential unforeseen with La Morra and greater Langhe.
Now a living legend of Piemonte, Roberto founded his philosophy on 3 pillars: Prime Location, Natural Farming, and the Unique maintenance of vineyards -low yields, extreme selection (green harvest) with high density plantation. He strives for a wine that only finds perfection in its rarity.
“One of the central tenets of the Voerzio approach,” says Antonio Galloni, “is a steadfast belief that the relationship between low yields and high quality is always linear.”
