BRIEF HISTORY OF THE ALBUGNANO WINE
The first documents mentioning the wines of Albugnano date back to 1148. The history of these wines is intertwined with that of the Abbey of Vezzolano and its Abbots for centuries, as they become increasingly appreciated, especially by the Savoy aristocracy.
In 1868 the Nebbiolo sparkling wine of Albugnano wins an award at an important exhibition held in Asti. The recognition of DOC designation, published on the Gazzetta Ufficiale (the official journal of record of the Italian government) on 17 May 1997, was a key milestone in the Albugnano’s history.
DOC designation for more than 20 years: this is the best starting point for a new and great future for the Albugnano wine.
