La Vedetta is the brainchild of Marco Viglino, a passionate and driven young man who a few years ago decided to quit his corporate nine-to-five to focus on continuing his family winemaking tradition.
Despite being a young cantina, the vines and the experience of the winemakers are second to none here. In the past, the grapes grown by the family were sold to other producers in the area and the limited number of private bottles were sold to guests of the family’s Bed and Breakfast.
Using his family’s expertise, traditional techniques, and a passion and respect for the terroir is key to Marco’s approach. Oenologist Piero Ballario (of Elio Grasso fame) consults at this tiny “garagiste” cantina.
La Vedetta is fast developing a reputation as a producer to watch in the Barbaresco growing region. Total production is 10,000 bottles: 2,000 Langhe Nebbiolo, 5,000 Barbera d’Asti and 3,000 Barbaresco.
