About Pio Cesare
The origin of Pio Cesare wines can be traced back to 1881. An affluent businessman, Pio Cesare, started this wine brand in 1881, as he wanted to produce limited quantity of wines for himself and his closed ones. He wanted to make the most of the fertile regions on the hills of Barolo and Barbaresco and create special wines from here. However, with every year, his passion for winemaking increased multifold.
By the beginning of the 20th century, he traveled to Europe to promote and spread awareness about Pio Cesare wines to the other countries. Pio’s passport was one of the first ones to be released by the Italian Government, when he had to travel to Europe! His son, Guiseppe Pio, took over the affairs of Pio Cesare wines in the 20th century, and he ensured that his company became a true representation of wines from the Alba region of Italy.
This label takes great pride in the fact that its vineyards (70 hectares) located in the unique locations of Barolo and Barbaresco have earned a place in the prestigious, “Additional Geographical Mentions”. These vineyards are located in different appellations to create wines that speak volumes about the rich terroirs.
