Fontanafredda

Fontanafredda is located in the heart of Langhe, an area blessed for centuries with a vocation for the production of great wines, particularly rich, powerful reds.

The viticulture is carried exclusively on hillsides.

The vineyards have an average altitude between 200 and 400 metres.
The Fontanafredda estate is located on the former hunting preserve of the first king of Italy Vittorio Emanuele II and his mistress Rosa Vercellana.

Their firstborn son Count Emanuele Alberto di Mirafiore and Fontanafredda, for his great passion for winemaking and agriculture matured the decision to turn the land into vineyards, thus founding the “Mirafiori Vini Italiani” in 1878.

The fame and the notoriety of the winery grew rapidly and the Count Emanuele was recognized as one of the important promoters of Barolo in the world. His approach proved to be thoroughly modern, leading to the immediate implementation of innovative criteria , focused on producing wines of quality, in particular Barolo.
