Producer
The Piedmont region of Italy, with its history of agriculture and its reputation for producing the highly-praised and prized Barolo wines, certainly qualifies as one of the world’s best-known areas for grape-growing and wine production. Carlo Ghisolfi bought a small property of approximately nine acres in 1985 in what is now known as the ”Cru Bussia” and started making wine. Carlo’s son and grandson expanded the property accumulating 21 additional acres of neighboring lands. The wines under the Ghisolfi label were made in 1988 and it included a Barolo Bricco Visette, which is the name of the hill of Carlo’s original nine acres. Until 1987, the land was used for both vines and other agricultural products. At that time, Carlo’s great grandson Gianmarco Ghisolfi had come into the family business and, with his father Attilio, converted most of the land over to grapevines in order to start producing wines under their own label. While not organically certified, the vineyards are eco-friendly and cultivated with a great respect for the environment. They do not use chemical fertilizers or herbicides (weeds are killed mechanically).
