The Broccardo family winery is described as having a young heart, but one with strong origins in the past. Filippo, Laura and Federica are the culmination of everything that has been handed down from their parents, grandparents and great-grandparents: a respect for the land, a passion for the job that requires hard work, techniques to naturally cultivate the vineyards and vinification with little intervention that preserves the fruit and terroir characteristics of the Lange area.

The Broccardo vineyards are in three of the most popular areas of the Langhe suited to the production of Barolo wine – Monforte d’Alba, Barolo and Novello. The vineyards cover seven acres facing south and southwest. The composition of the soil is characterized by clay, tuff, sand and silt left by the withdrawal of the Sea Padano about 16 million years ago. The alternation of these layers gives to their wines excellent finesse, structure and elegance. The wine cellar is in Monforte d’Alba, which in 2014 was designated a Unesco patrimony.
