The story of Fontanafredda is a noble one. In 1858, Vittorio Emanuele II, the first king of Italy, purchased a former hunting reserve and used the estate to produce fine Barolo for his personal use. Today, Fontanafredda is the single largest contiguous estate in Piedmont and includes 210 acres of vineyards in the Serralunga, Barolo and Diano d’ Alba communes.Plan to visit Fontanafredda and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Serralunga d'Alba attractions using our Serralunga d'Alba trip site.
Located in the heart of the Langhe region, Fontanafredda is a true institution in Piedmont. Fontanafredda is the benchmark for authentically-styled Barolo and Barbera wines that deftly balance intense aromas and deep concentration of fruit with outstanding finesse and elegance. All estate vineyards are farmed without the use of chemicals, and the property is home to a bio-natural reserve, providing a safe and sustainable refuge for a wide array of local flora and fauna.
