Figli Luigi OdderoDownload
Since 1878 the Oddero family has been synonymous with tradition and high quality Nebbiolo wines from the Langhe’s top vineyards, and it was in 1951 when brothers Giacomo and Luigi Oddero began bottling their family’s wines.
In 2006, after fifty years of passionately tending the vine and making the wine (while Giacomo, a chemist, was more ‘front of house’), Luigi was obliged – unceremoniously – to leave the family domaine in La Morra and create his own label. He took with him his wife Lena, their young children Giovanni and Maria, as well as 32 hectare of prime vineyards, including Castiglione Falletto’s Rocche dei Rivera & Serralunga d’Alba’s Vignarionda. Luigi loved the land, his vines & was also an expert grower of peaches.
With Luigi’s loss in 2010, Lena Oddero (nata Gavrilova) is now managing the estate, aided by her faithful team of Francesco Versio, Alberto Gatto & Gregorio (winemaking), Luciano Botto (agronomist), Alberto Zaccarelli (sales) & Dante Scaglione, ex Bruno Giacosa, consults.
The wines are traditionally and respectfully made in stainless-steel & cement tanks, & then aged in large Gamba & Stockinger oak barrels.
Their vineyards are in the villages of Treiso (for Barbaresco), La Morra, Barolo, Castiglione Falletto and Serralunga d’Alba.
