Only grapes of “controlled” origin are used at Fontanafredda. The estate vineyards, managed directly by our own technicians, cover a total of about 100 hectares (247 acres), cultivated mainly with Nebbiolo, Barbera, Dolcetto, and Moscato: the typical varieties of the Langhe. This production only satisfies 20% of the business’s yearly needs. Therefore, each year, during harvest, over four hundred local vine growers deliver their own grapes to Fontanafredda, respecting generations-old fiduciary relationships. These grapes are also grown according to the firm guidelines of logo vino libero which guarantee zero chemical residues. Thanks to these additional grapes, the company annually crushes about 6 million kilograms of grapes.
