In Piedmont, in the territory of Langhe, famous for DOC wines such as Nebbiolo, Barbera and Dolcetto, the “Tenuta del Barone” farm is set: it is a 23-hectare plot of land owned by the Vaira family.
The Tenuta del Barone farm is a single 23 hectares property in Vergne, between Barolo and Narzole, owned by the Vaira family, which has been involved in viticulture for several generations.
After having for many years sold most of the grapes produced to other wineries, transforming a part of them into wine to be sold in bulk, since 2006 Maurilio Vaira began to bottle a small amount of product.
Later, with the construction of the new cellar, the activity of winemaking and bottling has progressively grown to become the most important of the company.

Now, Tenuta del Barone uses its own grapes for the production of the great wines of the Langhe, enjoying great success.
In recent years, new vineyards have been planted that have taken away part of the land from the cultivation in the field; currently the company has the following composition: 6 hectares of vineyards where Nebbiolo, Barbera and Dolcetto grapes are grown; 13 hectares of land where various cereals and truffles are grown, 4 hectares of coppice forest where the tuber magnatum pico (the white truffle of Alba) is “grown”.
