More about today’s winery:
In 1917, returning after many years from living in the United States, Mario Vietti, Carlo’s son, took the reins of the company, transforming it into a winery suitable for the production of high-quality wines.
At the end of the 1950s, Alfredo Currado, husband of Luciana Vietti, oenologist and art lover, put into relation the great experience of the Vietti family with new intuitions, capable of intertwining wine knowledge with art and culture.
Beginning of 2023, Luca Currado Vietti, together with his wife Elena, departed from the Winery. The Heritage is taken over by the Krause Family, already owner of the Cellar since 2016 and standard-bearer of the new future of the Vietti brand.
As the seasons progressed, the company also grew and the focus on improvement soon became a real distinctive style of the winery. Just like the selection and care in the vineyard. Today, Vietti counts, within its heritage, some of the finest and most representative vineyards of the Barolo and Barbaresco areas.
As in the past, Vietti maintains those founding values, the same that animated Carlo Vietti at the beginning, and all his successors then. It looks towards the future with even more promising and stimulating prospects. Each wine is the result of artisanal work and the profound understanding and interpretation of each individual terroir. Vietti is thus the place where the intelligence of the hands, applied in the vineyard and the cellar, meets the vision.
