The first wine cellar was built by Giuseppe, son of the founder Giovanni, who, together with his sister Angela, extended his estate into the best soils and, in 1934, was one of the founders of the Consortium for the Defence of Barolo and Barbaresco. The family expanded the estate with the purchase of cru vineyards which are authentic jewels: Margheria, Parafada and Vigna Rionda.
The history of the Massolinos and their wine became entwined with the history of Serralunga d’Alba in 1896 when Giovanni founded the Estate. Giovanni was the very first person to bring the electric current to the village. An enterprising, tenacious and creative man, progenitor of a family that has made the combination of inspiration and tradition something to be proud of.
Making wine with passion, in its land of origin, preserving the typical characteristics of the autochthonous grape varieties, being convinced that there is a deep and tangible link between the vines, hills and winegrowers, made up of affinities cemented, by habit, to the land. Since 1896, the Massolino family has been making wine this way, loyal to this philosophy and to the capacity for innovation in the name of tradition. In short, loyal to itself.
Franco and Claudia Massolino will take our guests at Soneva Fushi and Soneva Jani on a virtual wine journey on February 25, 2022.
