This historical house is even today a family-business, where the owner, Marina, keeps up the traditions of the time of glory, that Burlotto had in the late 1800s. They became amongst the first to bottle Barolo and possibly were on of the first to use the name "Barolo". They supplied the wine to The Duke of Abruzzo's North Pole expedition in 1899 and also became suppliers to the Royal Court of the Savoia family. All this thanks to the 32 medals won during world exhibitions in Turin, Milan and Paris.

Todays reality is that the son, Fabio, has introduced modern help, but everything is still stricktly familymade and controlled in order to keep up the high standards. Out of 12 hectares of land 10 are in Verduno, where the winery is situated, the rest in Canubbi and area of Roddi. It is crucial to mention 2 of their 5 different Barolo. Canubbi is the real top product from the famous field, but the most particular is the Monvigliero, which even today is pressed gently by human feet and ferments in open oak casks.
Burlotto have also given new life to an almost forgotten grape of Verduno, Pelaverga, of which they make both pleasant red and rose' wines.

Additional information: Main products: 5 Barolos (i.e. Canubbi, Monvigliero), Barbera, Dolcetto, Pelaverga, Sauvignon.
