What we’re offering

Not just a simple tasting event

To understand wine you have to first of all get acquainted with it! The visit begins at the farmhouse and then moves on to the local wine-making area and continues to the wine cellar where aging takes place; it is here that the large barrels rest in silence.

Barolo in the past,
Barolo today

A taste that changes, evolves and matures over the years. Various Barolo wines, with only one objective: the quality of the wine. Discover the secrets of the Barolo wine and learn to recognize its unique features that make it one-of-a-kind.

A dip in the past

This summer relax and taste our wines in an authentic and traditional farmhouse. When you walk through its door you’ll be lunged back decades; you’ll note right away the original building, the tools once used and life as it was in the past.

All the flavors of the Langa

A land of flavors and products to discover. Try the local cold cuts and cheeses directly in the wine cellar, and learn to pair the wines and dishes of the Piedmont tradition.

Visit to the wine cellar: history and tradition

The Manzoni Wine Cellar

Barolo Fratelli Ferrero

We’re located in the center of Annunziata, a small La Morra hamlet. La Morra is a town where you must definitely stop to admire the stunning views of the Barolo hills.

Once you reach the town, go past the church on your right but keep looking left: just before the curve you’ll see a yellow farmhouse, the Cantina Ferrero. We, Nina and Renato, are ready to welcome and accompany you in discovering the secrets of wine and the history of our family.

The visit begins in the tasting room, where we explain how our company began. We then move on to where we make the wine; here you’ll see the steel tanks where the transformation process of the grapes begins and we then continue on to the aging cellar, where the wine is aged in silence and matures inside the wooden barrels.

Obviously we can’t miss out on the visit to the ancient Manzoni wine cellar, built in 1750, where our Barolo is preserved with care and which represents the heart of our company. Inside you’ll note a carefully preserved and mysterious bottle of champagne Moët et Chandon dated early 1900s.

In fine weather, the tour continues in the Gattera and Manzoni vineyards, the closest to the farm.

And, for anyone interested, you can watch the various work being carried out in the vineyard, depending on the season.

Wine tasting for all tastes

Hi, I’m Nina and I’ll be the one who welcomes and guides you in tasting our labels.

Tasting our wines is a personal experience and should be realized the best way possible. Whether alone or in a group, you’ll be shown how to recognize and understand the characteristics of the great Langa wines.

The basic tasting session includes three wines selected by us and it is always free for individual guests.

The new wine cellar

Upon request, you can arrange a more ample tasting session of our produce, by accompanying glasses of wine with local products: cold cuts and cheeses.

During this summer and throughout the entire warm weather season, the wine tasting will be held in the old Manzoni barn, a place rich in history, which still retains the charm of yesteryear.

Upon entering, leave everything modern outside, so you can dive into a journey through time that will lead you to discover farming traditions and get reacquainted with the area around you.

After the wine tasting session you can buy our products directly from the wine cellar. For anyone who can’t take them away, an express courier service is available.
