Project Description


The only winemaker creating eight unique, award-winning Barolo Crus

Founded in 1912 by Giuseppe Sordo, the present owner’s grandfather, Sordo Giovanni is now under the guidance of its third generation, Giorgio Sordo. Located a few kilometres from Alba, in the municipal district of Castiglione Falleto, Sordo produces critically acclaimed, award-winning Barolo wines. The unique aspect of their business is the producing of 8 Barolo Cru wines – the only winery in the region that produces such terroir driven variety.

The Sordo vineyards extend over a total surface area of 53 hectares, covering the municipal areas of Castiglione Falletto, Serralunga d’Alba, Monforte d’Alba, Barolo, Novello, La Morra, Verduno, Grinzane Cavour and Vezza d’Alba. With very deep, compact, calcareous marl and numerous micro elements, Sordo benefits from a multitude of environments for its cultivation of Nebbiolo. These differences translate into and are communicated by all Cru wines.

A new and very impressive ageing cellar, fitted with over one hundred high capacity Slovenian oak barrels (a softer style of wood so as not to interfere too heavily with each wine’s specific DNA), sits at the heart of the company and enables the wines to mature and develop perfectly. Every step of production follows the traditional methods, a mainstay of the winery throughout the decades.
