The Volpi winery was founded by Christiana Cairo Volpi at the turn of the century. In 1914 her two sons continued her initiative. The Volpi family had been in the restaurant business, having owned both the Trattoria de Cappel Verde and the Bar Venezia. Their passion for wine and food continues to this day, with Carlo Volpi running the winery. Although the Volpis produce an assortment of famous Piedmontese wines, such as Barolo and Barbaresco, they are best known for Barbera and Cortese from the Tortona Hills. Volpi’s winemaker, Dr. Giuliano Noe, was recently selected by the Gambero Rosso magazine as Italy’s top enologist. Volpi winery is a leader in organic wines throughout Italy.
