Giacomo Conterno

Giovanni, Giacomo, Giovanni and Roberto are the four generations behind the successful wines of Giacomo Conterno lies in Piemonte in the district of Langhe. Giovanni started the winery in 1908 with a mission of producing excellent Barolos. He had used the techniques of long fermentation and ageing periods resulted to a long ageing potential wines. Giacomo, on the other hand, took over the job after his return from WWI and shared the same vision with his dad, Giovanni of creating Barolos that can age for decades by extending the time of maceration and using a large, old wooden Botti for ageing. 

Later in 1974 when Giovanni, the third generation took over, the winery purchased it's very first vineyard, a 17-acre Francia vineyard in Serralunga known to be one of Piemonte's great monopole sites. It is where the estate's famous Monfortino grapes are grown. Monfortino is known to be the greatest Barolo for many and also the very first Barolo crafted in a classic style. 

At present, Giovanni's son, Roberto is handling the estate after his passing in 2004. The estate focusses to Nebbiolo and Barbera and uses only the highest quality grapes from their Francia vineyard on their label Cascina Francia and Monfortino Riserva. They also have their third Barolo labelled as Cerretta from a Serralunga vineyard that they bought in 2008.
