About Vietti Winery
The Vietti winery, managed by the family’s fifth generation, is based in the small medieval village of Castiglione Falletto, the heart of Piedmont’s famous “Langhe” wine region. Here the Currado family carefully and patiently handcrafts lauded wines that are the result of a unique combination of sun and soil. Vietti currently owns 90 acres of vineyards spread over nine communes within Barolo, and in nearly all the key regional appellations, including Barbaresco, Barbera d’Asti and Barbera d’Alba. Total production is currently 17,000 cases.
The family has made wine for two centuries, and their wine is currently made by Luca Currado who joined the family winery in 1990 after working at California’s Simi Winery, Opus One, Long Vineyards and Bordeaux’s Mouton-Rothschild. His innovative wine-making utilizes a unique combination of the modern and traditional. Luca’s focus on terroir is reflected in his careful cultivation and organic farming.
