Michele Chiarlo

The winery Michele Chiarlo was founded by the current owner in 1956, at Calamandrana, in the heart of the classic zone of production of Barbera d'Asti. Gradually the winery expanded its activity buying prestigious vineyards and constructing two cellars at Barolo and Gavi.

The role of the owner has always been that of identifying and patiently purchasing only vineyards in excellent positions and managing them with great care – each one according to the planned qualitative aim: the only way to make high quality wine.
At the moment, the winery owns 60 hectares of vineyards in which the leading wines are produced: La Court Barbera d’Asti “Nizza” Doc, Barolo Cerequio and Cannubi Docg, Montermareto Countacc Monferrato DOC. Another 52 hectares of vineyards are managed with long term contracts.

As far as the Barbera d’Asti is concerned, the Aluffi holding in Castelnuono Calcea with 20 hectares of Barbera in the heart of the Nizza zone is extremely prestigious and has recently been regulated to Barbera d’Asti DOC.
The farm of La Court is of the highest importance to this winery where the Barbera d’Asti of great acclaim is produced. The new generation is represented by Michele’s sons: Alberto, marketing Manager and Stefano, oenologist.
