Located in in the township of La Morra in the heart of the appellation, the Cordero family’s farm is one of Barolo’s most renowned and revered. Cordero di Montezemolo is one of just a handful of wineries to own contiguous vineyards in Barolo, where the majority of producers make wines from a patchwork of growing sites.

The family’s farmstead (Monfalletto) covers 28 hectares planted to vine including a southeastern and southwestern-facing amphitheater planted to Nebbiolo for the production of Barolo. Dolcetto, Barbera, and Arneis are planted on the northern-facing side of the hill with smaller amounts of Chardonnay and Barbera planted in the lower-lying vineyards.

In 1965, the Cordero family purchased two hectares in the Villero cru, one of Barolo’s most coveted growing sites. It is there that they make their flagship wine, Barolo Enrico VI. Altogether, the family owns and makes wine from 51 hectares of land, all estate-owned and managed.

Since 2013, the family has farmed all of its vineyards using organic practices — no herbicides, no pesticides, and no fungicides are used — and today all of their properties are certified organic.
