Monchiero Carbone

The Monchiero Carbone winery is located in Canale, in the heart of the Roero hills where its foundations were laid in 1987 when the large farmhouse in via S.Stefano Roero was purchased

Overview

The well-established winemaker Marco Monchiero was returning to his home town after many years working away in various Italian wineries, and the decision to buy was certainly influenced by the allure of an extensive wine cellar which had been built beneath the house by a rather well-off local family towards the end of the 1700s.

Marco and his wife Lucetta Carbone brought together two families whose wine-making traditions, dating back to the early 1900s, had been interrupted for several decades before this venture was taken on.

Production finally began again in 1990, aided by their son Francesco who had recently started studying winemaking and who showed an unmistakable desire to take on the family vineyards.
