More about today’s winery – Marengo Mauro Winery
The cellar is a small family-run business, born thanks to Francesco Marengo (Mauro’s father, the current owner and successor) who decided to plant his first vineyards in Novello around the 1950s.
Born mainly as an agricultural activity, over time it became a winery, and in 2015 (with the arrival of the third generation in the cellar) it started to sell bottled wines in the international market.
The family only cultivate his own land: they own 11 hectares of native vines of Dolcetto, Barbera, Nebbiolo and Nas-cëtta, located on the hills of Novello and Barolo.
Growers for generations, the Marengo family dedicate the utmost attention to the care of the vineyard, respecting all the times that nature requires.
The company produces Nas-cëtta del comune di Novello DOC, Dolcetto d’Alba DOC, Barbera d’Alba DOC, Barbera d’Alba Superiore DOC, Langhe Nebbiolo DOC, Barolo DOCG, Barolo Angela DOCG, and a red wine called “Falun”.
