Vittorio Emanuele II purchased the Fontanafredda estate in 1858 and gave it as a gift to La Bela Rosina.
Like all good things, Fontanafredda was born from a love story in 1858, that between the first King of Italy, Vittorio Emanuele II, and Rosa Vercellana, The couple had two children: Maria Vittoria and Emanuele Alberto, the man who founded the winegrowing estate. Now with 120 hectares of certified organic land, Fontanafredda produces the great wines of the Langhe that rest in its 19th century cellars: a place just waiting to be discovered, where to learn anecdotes of the royal family and the intriguing habits of the King, and to admire the majesty of the big oak barrels which reveal what has made Fontanafredda an icon of Barolo throughout the world.
The mission is to fully emphasise the character and personality of each individual wine, resulting from the interaction between the grape variety, the environment and human intervention, from harvesting to ageing, like artisans with the numbers of a big company.
Respect for the land also translates into respect for people and these values have a specific colour: #GREEN.
