The professional from Diano D'alba, who developed the family business into a winery with a great reputation for authentic Barolo and Dolcetto wines.
The Langhe provides the spectacular backdrop for the 120-year history of the Alario family business. Claudio Alario and his family live in the municipality of Diano d'Alba. They have devoted themselves to viticulture with great passion and add further chapters to the long family history.
In 1988 Claudio, coming straight from the agricultural school, took over the business from his father. However, at this point Claudio had already had many years of practical experience behind him. From a very young age, he worked every free minute with his father and grandfather in the vineyard. The work with his grandfather in the vineyard had a particularly strong influence on him.
Today Claudio produces around 40,000 bottles of wine annually on 10 hectares. In addition to the Dolcetto wines, Claudio has also made a name for himself as a Barolo producer. Years ago, he bought additional vineyards in the municipalities of Verduno and Serralunga D'Alba. He presses two excellent Barolo single-site wines from the Nebbiolo grapes. With his son Mattia, who has been working in the company for a few years, the next generation of Alario is ready.
