Italy – Marchesi di Grésy
Alberto di Grésy, born in Milan, grew up with a passion for wine and the land, spending many weekends and summers at his family’s vineyard at Villa Giulia.
This 19th century hunting lodge and vineyard, built by his grandfather Carlo, is located on Monte Aribaldo, a hill in the heart of Piedmont. While supervising the agricultural operations of his family estates, he realized early on that he was not content selling his grapes, as was the tradition in the Langhe.
His childhood dream came to fruition in 1973 when Alberto di Grésy began vinifying his own wine. Since then Marchesi di Gresy has been committed to producing wine with the best available technology while respecting tradition- transferring the character and personality of the vineyard and varietal to the bottle.
