"You need the best grapes" - said Giovanni Lodali in 1939 – "because wine is everywhere here and everyone knows about wine; if you don't make wine and you haven't made the right choices they go and buy elsewhere." The story of this vineyard offers a vision of the tough existence in the Langhe hills. It is the story of Giovanni Lodali, a peasant and the son of peasant, who began to make wine for the customers at his small restaurant in Treiso, the only one existing in what was then a small village.
