The Story

Since its origins dating back to 1922, the activity of the farmhouse has had a traditional agricultural setting, with particular attention paid to the winemaking. Today the company extends for about 12 hectares cultivated with Barbera, Dolcetto, Grignolino, as regards the black grapes and Cortese, Chardonnay and Moscato as regards the white varieties.

Currently the Stella Farm is a purely family-run winery. The vision of the company is aimed at the production of genuine wines with the basic idea of ​​a production capable of enhancing the indigenous Piedmontese vines. As a demonstration of this it can be noted that all the wines produced are single-variety or if blends are produced from native grapes of the Piedmont area.
