A dialogue between past and present

A dialogue between past and present

Winery visits are a privileged moment for visitors to understand the work that’s hidden behind the bottle, but above all the way in which we do our work. The visits guarantee an interaction between the winemaker, the product, and customer that has no equal

Mara Abbona

Built beginning in 2004 and inaugurated in 2006, the winery of Marziano Abbona is an ode to the hills of Dogliani. Located in the village of San Luigi in the center of a natural amphitheater of hills, at its back is a large, man-made pond, behind which the Alpine mountains are outlined along the horizon on clear days.

The winery rises up on the foundations of an ancient farmhouse once called “Cascina Valle dell’Olmo” in honor of the majestic elm (olmo) tree that grew in the barnyard. Struck with disease, the elm was cut, but it lives on in the stairs that lead to the ancient cellars of the farmhouse.

This winery represents a dialogue between past and present, perfectly integrating the landscape with its ancient foundations. The old, brick-vaulted ceilings arch over the tasting room, while the modern winemaking and aging rooms are completely interred. It emerging sections are covered in grass and finished Langhe stone. The modern area of the building also has a tasting room, its floor constructed in wood from old wine barrels and lit by large windows that open up to the magnificent countryside.

Under the barrel room, the reconstruction works uncovered an acquifier. Preserved, it acts as a natural cooler, maintaining a constant, underground temperature.

The winery is open for visits by appointment. Call +39 0173.721317 or write to to reserve.

The visits are also available in English and French, and includes a wine tasting and the possibility to purchase wines direct.
