The Abrigo family have been tending vineyards for generations, with their skills being handed down from father to son. In 1988 Giovanni Abrigo began working alongside his father, Orlando, in the family business. Giovanni set out first-of-all to implement technical improvements in the winery, with the aim of producing wines of character. Subsequently the estate was extended with the acquisition of land and vineyards. Today Orlando Abrigo farms around 20 hectares of vineyards growing native varietals such as Nebbiolo, Dolcetto, Barbera, Moscato and Nascetta, and a small number of international varieties, including Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Merlot.
