The Taliano family who own Montaribaldi have been making wines since 1968 and are proud caretakers of their lands in the heart of Barbaresco. The family is committed to producing wine using Integrated farming methods, in short this means using agricultural and biological methods rather than chemicals to deal with disease and pests, only treating the vines when and where it is necessary, maintaining the local flora and fauna of the area which assists in the biological diversity of the vine growing eco system and ensuring sustainable production of high quality, healthy grapes.
Wine making is not just about growing grapes, it encompasses a large diversity of activities from sales trips, wine tastings, vineyard visits, celebrations and much more. To have a quick insight into a year in Montaribaldi take a look at their 2103 video.
