Founded in 1892 in Canelli, Piedmont, Coppo winery is one of the oldest family-run Italian wineries and has remained so for over 120 years.
The historical Coppo underground cellars, a UNESCO World Heritage, were built in the late 18th century, extending under Canelli hill for a total of five thousand square meters (53,800 sq. ft.) and up to a depth of forty meters (130 ft.).
In the early 1980s, Coppo was among the first in the territory to demonstrate the elegance, character, and aging potential of the Barbera grape. With Pomorosso revealed to the world the greatness and potential of a vine that until then had remained off the radar of the great Piedmontese reds.
Coppo wines are characterized by elegance, finesse and longevity. In addition to iconic labels such as Pomorosso (now known as "Nizza"), the historic Canelli producer is famous for the exciting Classic Method sparkling wines (such as Luigi Coppo, Clelia Coppo and Riserva Coppo); the Chardonnay Monteriolo (with elegant minerality and savory marine notes, a white wine capable of refining for many years); the Nizza Docg (Bric del marchese; Pontiselli; Rdf) and the Moscato d'Asti Moncalvina, belonging to the “Canelli” sub-area ” (which obtained the DOCG in 2023).
Coppo aims to guarantee maximum respect for the environment and sustainability to preserve and enhance the varietal characteristics and territorial expression of its wines.
