Alvio Pestarino’s winery was founded in 1919 when Pestarino Giovanni bought a Cascina with a small vineyard in Barcanello in the municipality of Capriata d’Orba. Since then, three generations have been involved in the cultivation of the vine.
Alvio gave a strong impulse to the development of the business, cultivating a passion that he transmitted to his children, who for years have supported their father in the management of the company.
Today Andrea and Giulia, sons of Alvio, represent the 4th generation of this family. With pride and competence, they are committed to combining tradition and innovation in the management of the company. Agronomic choices are based on the principle of integrated crop management and great attention is paid to each stage of processing to keep the quality of the fruit high. The goal is to produce high quality wines and work to ensure that each bottle represents the maximum expression of that wine.
Alvio Pestarino winery is part of the Federazione Italiana Vignaioli Indipendenti (FIVI).
