The winery Erede di Chiappone Armando owes its name to its forefather, a man of great capacity and foresight. Row after row, the company has expanded to the present day under the guidance of its son Franco. It is therefore from the early 1900s that wines of high thickness and exceptional personality are produced. Today, after three generations, the baton has passed to Armando’s nephew, Daniele, a winemaker who, together with his father, his mother Liliana and his sister Michela, directly manages 10 hectares of vineyards. The vineyards are located around “Cascina San Michele”, an ancient village, located on the top of the homonymous hill, from which stands the bell tower of the ancient Pieve. The company philosophy is to produce wines of the highest quality and personality that fully reflect the typical characteristics of the territory.

The Barbera is among the most representative vines of Piedmont and it covers about 30% of the 43,000 hectares of vineyard area of the region. Originally from Monferrato, this vine is cultivated mainly in the provinces of Asti and Alessandria, where it reaches its maximum expression in Barbera d’Asti, a wine that obtained the Doc recognition in 1970 and the Docg one in 2008. The Barbera d’Asti is a wine linked to the ancient rural traditions that today represent a product in continuous evolution, which grows following the new knowledge in the viticulture and oenological field.
