Located on the left hand side of the Tanaro River, Roero is an area composed of 23 boroughs in the heart of the Piedmont region, halfway between Asti and Cuneo. Traditionally the fief of the Savoia Family, the area took on the name “Roero” after the noble family from Asti, a name that has remained one of the foremost throughout the history of the region since the Middle Ages.
A tiny paradise composed of hills and vineyards, with a landscape of contrasting steep rises and gentle slopes. Well-known for its sandy terroir, rich in sea fossil residue, Roero has a long history of traditional winemaking. On the slopes with the best exposure, the vines grown using the ancient system of guyot planting alternate with abundant fruit orchards. The dense hazel nut groves growing in the flatlands, green woods and the famous ochre-yellow stone give the Roero area a fascinating peaceful beauty that is unique.
