Ciao amici del vino,
We have exciting Piedmonte wines to suit all tastes. From the juiciest to the darkest and most serious Barbera, embark with us to explore the story of the house of Carrussin.
An organic family story
In 1961 Carlo Ferro married Vanda Ferro, who also descended from a farming family. She joined him in the management of the company with the aim of improving the quality of the products. Their daughter Bruna was born in 1962. As soon as she finished her studies, she dedicated herself, together with her parents, to the art of viticulture and high quality winemaking. In 1981, Luigi Garberoglio met Bruna Ferro and got attracted by the fascinating work of viticulture, a new addition to the wine family. In 1988, Ferro Carlo left his daughter his precious heritage of experience and wisdom. Today, Luigi Garberoglio and Bruna Ferro share the inherited winegrowing dream with their sons Luca and Matteo. A long and happy wine family history, which is reflected in the quality of the wine. The family now looks after their 12 hectares of vineyards spread over four villages around San Marzano Oliveto in Piedmont.
A low anthropogenic impact
Don't understand the meaning? We neither, until the family explained us what they this concept means to them. For them, a low anthropogenic impact means to defend the integrity of the land and to preserve the individuality of the wine. This implies to move in the opposite direction from the standardisation that chemicals, industrialisation and technology have brought to agriculture. This goal of theirs has been achieved in 1984 were no more chemicals were used on the land.
But why so many donkeys?
