In 1878, Emanuele Alberto Guerrieri, Count of Mirafiore, son of the first King of Italy, founded Casa E. di Mirafiore with his estates in Barolo and Fontanafredda. A winery which has always been a pioneer, thanks to the foresight of Emanuele Alberto, a nobleman with a modern approach to wine and a community-oriented attitude. Of aristocratic origin and now with a strong rural identity, Casa E. di Mirafiore expresses the authentic oenological tradition of the Langhe. Since 2018, it has been an Organic Estate, with vineyards in the Barolo and Fontanafredda subzone, and it makes wine exclusively from estate-owned vineyards, including two of the finest Barolo DOCG crus, Lazzarito and Paiagallo.
Precision, balance and elegance are the essential elements of each individual wine, in order to express all the power and the deep connection between the vine and its land of origin. Wine has always been an element of culture, which develops a community of people with shared interests and ethical principles.
The expression of a new and refined vision, where innovation is represented by the recovery of unconditional tradition.
