About the Winery
Though the idea for conceptualizing Vietti wines was sown during the 19th century, the brand started making its own wines only during the beginning of the 20th century. The first wines from the Vietti label were made during 1919 by Patriarch Mario Vetti, and the label has grown from strength to strength since then. By the 1950s, the Vietti winery became one of the top-producing wineries in the Piemonte region. By this time, this Italian wine label had also started exporting its wines to the USA.
Some of the grape varietals used for creating Vietti wines and the areas from where they are sourced are:
These grapes are sourced from the vineyards located in the Santo Stefano Roero region. These vines are quite old and are planted with a density of around 5000 vines per hectare.
These grapes are sourced from the vineyards in Castiglione Tinella. These vineyards contain 40-year-old vines that are planted with a density of around 4500 vines per hectare.
