Cantina del Pino

Domizio Cavazzo was the director of the Royal Enological School in Alba from 1888 - 1913. When he arrived he surprised everyone by purchasing land and making his home in Barbaresco. The noble families expected he would reside near the more famous estates in Barolo. He purchased the Ovello vineyard and began making wine. For the first time the wine made from the nebbiolo vineyards surrounding the village was called Barbaresco. For the people of this area it was a huge compliment. Cavazzo was very charismatic and an outspoken supporter of the farmers in the Langhe.  My great grandfather purchased the vineyards after Sig. Cavazzo prematurely died and his family moved to Torino. The Vacca family has been here ever since.
