Ciabot Berton

By the end of the 1950s, Luigi Oberto, along with his father Giovenale, was tending 2 hectares of Nebbiolo vines on the hill of Bricco San Biagio, and selling the grapes to merchants. That is until they took the decision that would change the history of Ciabot Berton. Aware of the potential of their grapes, they decided to stop selling them and transform them into wine instead. Their first Barolo was bottles in 1961.

As the years went by, more land was planted with vines until the present 12 hectares were reached. A new winery was built in the 1980’s. It enjoys a great position with an amazing view. On clear days you can see the peaks of the Alps, while in the opposite direction the villages of the Alta Langa form a hinge between Piedmont and Liguria.

From the 1990s, Luigi’s children Marco, an oenologist, and Paola, an agronomist, began working with him. Increasingly aware of the quality and full potential of the vineyards and their Nebbiolo grapes, they decided to produce single vineyard wines.

Through some minor modernization in the cellar, while keeping the traditional way favored by Luigi, the wines of Ciabot Berton have become increasingly known and widely appreciated.
