Andrea Oberto has been producing great Barolo wines from the best locations in La Morra for years.
The story of the Andrea Oberto winery began when Andrea's father bought a farmhouse in the municipality of La Morra. Today, La Morra is the largest and also one of the most important growing areas for Barolo wine. But in the early 1950s, none of the winegrowers could make a living from growing grapes alone. Because of this, the Oberto family made their living from farming and animal husbandry, and growing vines was more of a sideline.
It was only when the demand for Barolo wine increased that Andrea decided to give up his secure job as a bus driver and concentrate entirely on winegrowing.
Today the winery is one of the established Barolo producers in La Morra. Annual production is a good 125,000 bottles of wine, and the range includes not only Barolo, but also various Barbera, Dolcetto and Nebbiolo wines. Fabio produces four different Barolo wines. Three of them are site wines, Albarella, Brunate and Rocche dell' Annunziata, which are among the most important crus in La Morra.
