About today’s guest producers:
Isabella Oddero is the seventh generation owner of one of the most historical wineries in the Langhe hills for the production of Barolo and Barbaresco wines. She is the owner and manager together with her aunt Mariacristina Oddero of the family property. They are the first generation of women in charge of the production and management of the estate after so many generations of men before them. Isabella was born and raised in La Morra, at her family winery, where she learned from everyday experience to have a deep respect for such a prestigious heritage and tradition and she developed a determined will to protect the authenticity of the area. When she was 18 years old she followed her desire to explore a different world and she spent some years in Milano, attending the Catholic University studying business economics and foreign languages where she obtained a degree in business communication and management. After her studies, she realized her priority was to be a good ambassador of the historical Oddero company and its wines in the world, as well as a young spokesperson for the territory of the Langhe hills and its extraordinary soils.
