Generaj is the nickname that was once attributed to my family.
Comes from one of my ancestors lived in the nineteenth century, the "General".
He was not an official army, but a simple peasant and loyal honest enough to perform the delicate task of the conciliator in Town; also distributed land to farm the seeds from the bug for silk, an important source of income at that time. in family the cultivation of the vine was the main activity which is joined to that of cereals, wheat and cattle.
Jealously keep the records of those years and several parcels of notarial writings still our membership. Even then, in that tiny fact, the love of the land, seriousness and ambition were the basis for every act.
it's so that the "General" made me heir of his passion and his dedication to hard work in the vineyard.

  • VINEYARDS AND WINE: The vineyards are all located in the municipality of Montà, north of the end of the Roero. Here the composition of land is varied and changes from red to sand clods through limestone gravel-mixed soil. The solar altitude and exposure are the other elements that play to foster a micro or "terroir" that can be used wisely for ...
