Chionetti - Der erstklassige Dolcetto und Barolo Produzent aus Dogliani

The history of the Chionetti family has been linked to viticulture since the 19th century.

In 1912 Giuseppe Chionetti bought a farm in the vineyards of San Luigi in of the municipality of Dogliani. From then on, the Chionetti family sold their Dolcetto wine to the region's largest dealers.

Little by little, the family began selling bottled wine and the Chionetti name was formally established. But it is thanks to Quinto, the grandson of the founder Giuseppe, that the marketing of the bottles bearing the family name really took off.

Andrea, Quinto's son, decided to explore the potential of the vineyards and so they began to produce three Dolcetti Crus: Sorì Briccolero, San Luigi, Vigna la Costa.

In During these years the company expanded significantly. The Chionetti wines became synonymous with Dolcetto wines from Dogliani and the family began exporting abroad and to the United States. Quinto received a recognized high reputation throughout the wine world during his lifetime and this continued after his death.

In 1988, at the moment of greatest growth, Andrea and his daughter Elena died in a car accident. However, Quinto continued the work he had passed on to his son years earlier and led the company into the new millennium with great determination. Quinto received a recognized high reputation throughout the wine world during his lifetime and this continued after his death.

Finally, in 2013, Quinto handed over the reins to his grandson Nicola, who decided to continue the tradition of producing Dogliani and to resume the vinification of Cru La Costa, which his father Andrea had wanted.

Since In 2015 the Chionetti family acquired 3 vineyards in the Barolo area. The grapes are vinified separately, and now Chionetti produces three different Barolo Cru wines.
