The secret to success for Ceretto Winery in Piedmont is owed to the exceptional soil and climate of the Langhe and the proprietors’ passion and wisdom to capture this quality in the wine.

Riccardo Ceretto understood this in the 1930s when he began winemaking. His sons Bruno and Marcello completed their father’s vision when they purchased vineyards in what are today some of the most celebrated zones of Barolo and Barbaresco.

In the winery’s three estates — Monsordo Bernardina in Alba, Bricco Rocche in Castiglione Falletto, and Bricco Asili in Barbaresco — Ceretto produces the great Barolo and Barbaresco wines that spearhead their production, along with other labels such as white Langhe Arneis Blangé and high quality Moscato.

The year 2000 was a turning point for Ceretto in terms of more sustainable production in the vineyards and cellar, as well the beginning of many new projects, including hazelnut production with Relanghe, wine import with Terroirs, and collaboration with Enrico Crippa, the 3 Michelin-starred chef of Piazza Duomo and its bistro La Piola in Alba. In 2000, the Bricco Rocche winery acquired a modern design addition known as The Cube, a transparent and frameless glass cube overlooking the vineyards.

Then, in 2009, The Grape was built at the Monsordo Bernardina winery, a transparent bubble almost suspended over the vineyards, open to wine tastings, events, conferences, and more.

Finally, many wine travelers have seen Ceretto’s bright, multicolored sanctuary painted by artists Sol LeWitt and David Tremlett.
