Winery of the Month

 

West of Torino and the vinous hubbub of the Langhe is Pinerolese, an appellation created in 1997 based on an ancient growing area at the foot of the Monviso Alps. This is the first we've heard of this appellation, so feel like you've been in the dark. Our introduction to Pinorelese comes by way of Le Marie, a small winery created by Valerio Raviolo, whose wife Luigina and children Simona and Daniele help make it all work. We found a lot to like about each of the three wines currently offered, and hope you will take the opportunity to try all three.
