Produttori del Barbaresco

The Produttori del Barbaresco has a long and distinguished history and great wines have always been made here. Prior to 1894, Nebbiolo grapes were sold to make Barolo wine or simply labelled "Nebbiolo di Barbaresco". But in 1894, Domizio Cavazza, headmaster of the Royal Enological School of Alba and a Barbaresco resident, created the first cooperative, the "Cantine Sociali", by gathering nine Barbaresco vineyard owners to make wine in the local castle that he owned.

Aldo Vacca manages this cooperative which traces its origins to Domizio Cavazza, widely credited for being the first person to recognize the unique qualities of the vineyards in Barbaresco as far back as the 1890s.  

Except for a tiny production of Langhe Nebbiolo, the Produttori have always focused on Barbaresco, a choice that was commercially very difficult in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, before the wines had gained the worldwide audience they have today.  The turning point for the estate was when famed restaurateur Guido Alciati began to serve the Riserva Rabajà to his customers.  Then came the 1990 vintage, and with it the attention of the world.  Today the Produttori have 55 partners and farm over 90 hectares of first-class vineyards.  The estate produces over 350,000 bottles a year, a staggering number considering the small size of most estates in the area and the high average quality the Produttori achieve.

The cooperative produces traditionally styled wines, including a base bottling and in top vintages nine single-vineyard Riservas from the most important crus in the town of Barbaresco.  The Barbarescos are fermented for about three weeks in glass lined cement vats and age exclusively in casks ranging from 25 to 75 hectolitres.
