In 1977, Pierino Piantavigna planted his first vineyard of Nebbiolo in the hills above Ghemme. The name “Torraccia del Piantavigna” was formed 13 years later, inspired by Pierino’s passion for the vineyard and the name of the nearby hill “La Torraccia”. The company is known in Italy and worldwide for the quality of its innovative wines which, at the same time, reflect the local character and traditions.
Today, the company draws inspiration from grandfather Pierino, not only by making wines of recognised quality and elegance but also in its values and attitudes towards the local area, community and environment. As a reflection of its work in environmental protection, in 2014, 2017 and 2018 Torraccia del Piantavigna was honoured with the prestigious Eco-Friendly award from the Touring Club Italiano.
