Where wine grows

The winery is the place where Barolo and the other wines take shape. Guido Porro built the winery on the top of the hill which overlooks the valley from the village, where countless vineyards outline the profiles all around the castle of Serralunga. In 1996 the winery was enlarged with the building of a new underground ageing area for Barolo and a ground floor to stock the other wines in stainless-steel tanks.

In the same period they opened the holiday farm Agriturismo Santa Caterina, adding more services for the visitors. The company Guido Porro continued to expand and in 2009 they finished the building of the stocking area, the bottling area and the second underground floor for the wine ageing. Barolo matures in large Slavonia oak barrels. 25 and 50-quintal concrete tanks are the first step made by the grapes to become wine, during the fermentation. The careful temperature control, the presence of two underground levels, the large number of raking-offs, the use of natural yeasts: these are the "secrets" which allow Guido Porro to obtain a wine which matures naturally.

The winery is a place for growth: Barolo and the other wines take their shape here, following an ancient model which will continue into the future.
