The Gruppo Araldica Castelvero is one of Italy’s leading wine companies in the region, representing a large number of Piemonte wines, with 900 ha. and areas like Roero (this one), Monferrato and Gavi. Founded in 1954 as a cooperative and has now around 140 members. Based in the small commune of Castel Boglione, 70 km south east from Turin.

Roero’s hilly wine region is north from the small town of Alba, with Arneis the main (native) white grape; this wine one from the little Colle Rosa vineyard. The Arneis grape is little or not grown elsewhere. The Roero name comes from a family of bankers and traders, influencing the region for a few centuries, dating back to the Middle Ages.
