Le vigneron

The Pira family has been associated to the territory of Serralunga d’Alba, in the heart of the Barolo appellation zone, since the end of the 19th century. In the 50s, Luigi Pira decided to bottle the production of the family farm. Until then, grapes and wine per litre were sold to the large estates of the Alba region.

But it was in the early 90 that their wine storehouse made a qualitative leap. The Gianpaolo son joined the project, modernized and expanded the wine storehouse. Today, three Barolo wines are produced from the 12 hectares of the Pira’s family historic vineyard, spread on the prestigious western slope.
