Producer Profile

Poderi Cellario

Fausto and Cinzia Cellario, 3rd generation winemakers from Carru` in the Langhe, are staunch advocates of local winemaking traditions. They work exclusively with indigenous Piemontese grape varieties, maintaining organic vineyard practices across their 30 hectares spread over five different sites in the southern Langhe. Their Dogliani plot, located in Novello and Monforte, is particularly esteemed, establishing them as Dolcetto specialists. Fermentation occurs naturally with indigenous yeasts, and sulfur is sparingly added, only at bottling if necessary, a practice uncommon for a winery of their size.
