Producer
The Pecchenino wine estate dates back to the end of the 1700’s and has always been a family-run operation, with the holding handed down from father to son for generations. Records from the early 1900’s show that the farm, owned and run by Attilio, the current generation’s grandfather, originally consisted of just a little over 8 hectares. Since the beginning of the 1970’s, when it passed into the capable hands of his son Marino and then in 1987 to grandsons Orlando and Attilio, new land and vineyards have been acquired and it now number 25 hectares, of which 22 are located in the Commune of Dogliani and 3 in Monforte d’Alba. The area of Dogliani is especially suited to the cultivation of the Dolcetto grape, whose presence here is documented in a manuscript from 1432, discovered in the municipal archives. 70% of the estate’s vineyards are dedicated to Dolcetto, with the remaining planted with Barbera, Nebbiolo, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. The estate also has land in the municipality of Monforte d’Alba, one of the prime areas for the production of Barolo, at San Giuseppe, where the ”Le Coste” cru is produced, and in Bussia, where the ”Bussia Corsini” cru will be produced.
