Since its foundation in 1892 in Canelli, Piedmont, the Coppo winery has remained in the family for over 120 years, making it one of the oldest family run wineries in all of Italy.
Their historical underground cellars, a UNESCO World Heritage site, were built beginning in the late 18th century and extend under the hill of Canelli for a total of five thousand square meters (53,800 sq ft) and up to a depth of forty meters (130 ft).
Coppo’s wines are characterized with elegance, finesse, and longevity. Its production centers on Barbera, Metodo Classico sparkling wines, Chardonnay, and Moscato d’Asti. In the early 1980s, the Coppo brothers were among the first in the territory to demonstrate the elegance, character, and aging potential of the barbera grape.
Barbera remains their specialty today, in particular the Barbera d’Asti DOCG Pomorosso label. Other labels of note are the Moscato d’Asti “Canelli,” a new subzone prized for its excellent Moscato, and the Monteriolo, a great chardonnay with elegant minerality and savory marine notes — a wine capable of aging over twenty years.
Coppo’s goal is to guarantee maximum respect for the grape varieties and the environment in all stages of their production.
