The vineyards are located on hilly slopes in the villages of Serralunga d’Alba and Sant Stefano Belbo. The old, well-exposed vines provide early-ripening grapes. Whole grapes are softy pressed. The must is fined and filtered prior to fermentation in pressurized tanks at a low temperature. To be enjoyed young, this wine is ready for consumption a few days after bottling. This is a wine for celebrations, and is ideal with all desserts. A very appealing drink on its own, it is the ideal wine to be served with many kinds of sweet, particularly when they have a fine, delicate flavor. The estate’s noble past is still evident at Fontanafredda today in the hunting lodge, hamlet, extensive cellars and vineyards, but it continues to innovate and experiment, perfecting what nature and history have handed down. This is why, in the Langhe, where the landscape is marked by the vines and wines that have linked generations down the years, Fontanafredda continues to stand out as a point of reference: the expression of a wine culture that stems from the land and the vineyard, and matures through the work and creativity of men.

Wine maker notes
In the heart of wine-growing Piedmont - in the hills of the Langhe - Fontanafredda was born: chronicles of the time relate that “by order of 17 June 1858? an area of 138. 82 “giornate piemontesi” (approx. 54 hectares) of the property of Roggeri Giacomo, son of Giovanni Battista in Serralunga d’Alba, was registered under the private estate of Vittorio Emanuele II King of Sardinia. The king, who had fallen hopelessly in love with Rosa Vercellana, also known as “La Bela Rusin”, a commoner and daughter of a drum major at his majesty’s service, gave the entire parcel of land to her, making her Countess of Mirafiori and Fontanfredda a year later. The history of Fontanafredda had begun, but it did not start operating as a business venture until twenty years later, in 1878, thanks to the farsightedness of Emanuele Guerrieri, Count of Mirafiore, son of the king and Bela Rusin, a noble entrepreneur who devoted his life to wine with a very modern approach.
