With almost fifty years of history in viticulture, the Gallino family of Poderi Gallino has shown great passion for their wine production in Cisterna d’Asti, Piedmont since 1977. They cultivate vines in their 6-hectare land between the provinces of Asti and Cuneo. They have small vineyards planted with local grape varieties namely Barbera, Nebbiolo, Arneis and Croatina which are cultivated according to the organic methods of farming, without the use of herbicides. All the wines go through fermentation using the natural yeasts except for the white wines. Their hard work paves way to an annual production of 20,000 to 25,000 bottles.
Leonardo Gallino is hands-on in the estate and he works with his son Luca and he instills in him the same passion that he has in producing wines of excellent quality. Being a small winemaker in a denomination so important doesn’t deter his success because he and his son’s commitment to quality paves the way for their success.
