THE CORNAREA

The Cornarea Wine Producing company is located within the territories of Canale, a town in the heart of the Roero, small hilly region that borders with the Langhe area.
Since ancient times it has been a wine producing territory. Cornarea owes its name to the hill where its vineyards are to be found and that has been known with this name since the year 1000: on its top, the unmistakable Villa can be seen, built at the beginning of the last century by the then Canale Mayor Mr Eugenio Grillone. It towers over the 15 hectares of vineyards that entirely belong to the company.
