Who we are

Where the Talloria stream flows, dividing Diano d'Alba, Serralunga d'Alba, Montelupo Albese and Sinio, extends the farm VEGLIO MICHELINO & FIGLIO.

In the early 1900's Carlo (Osvaldo’s grandfather), along with his dad Michele leads  the company. In 1935 Michelino (Carlo’s son)  was born,  and at the age of 10 decide to left the school  to work with his dad and with his desire to work (which still have , despite his 80 years) has managed a strong expansion of the company, mainly characterized by the new vineyards that will come up beside the Dolcetto grape variety: Barbera and Nebbiolo wherewith  the Barolo is produced.

At the beginning of the 90's, after  finishing  the wine-oenological studies, the current owner  Osvaldo, begins working in the company with his father Michelino  and his mother Giuseppina.

The Dolcetto, Barbera and Nebbiolo vineyards, have been gradually  flanked  by the Chardonnay, Sauvignon and Moscato vineyards , creating a mix of experience (Michelino) and innovation (Osvaldo) that leads to produce 18 wines even better and closer to the needs of the consumer.

In 2007 Marco ,Osvaldo's brother-in-law, comes along,  and they start to explore new markets, later consolidated by the international wine advisor  Sebastiano Ramello.

In July 2014, Simone Veglio , after finishing his studies at the Alba's oenological school, began working with his father and grandfather  in the cellar and  vineyards. Simone represents the fifth generation of the company Veglio Michelino & Figlio.

The new cellar has been inaugurated in September 2015 : it’s composed by  the aging department, made up of Slavonian oak barrels of 50 hl (as in the Piedmont tradition) and the big tasting room.

 

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Cantina Veglio Michelino & Son products tell the story of the land where they born and grow, they are also the symbol of the inseparable bond between tradition and innovation. The land tells about its self though its stories, its passions, its way to approach to the world and the future that awaits it.

The vine is the heart of everything. It makes us struggle and rejoice, but it's there that we spend most of our time and that's why every bottle does not contain only wine but study and research, disappointments and satisfaction, hard work and waiting for the end result.

The love for this land, the desire to protect it and the ability to imagine every day a new way to give it value is the philosophy that leads our company since 1870.
