Oddero and his historical Barolo
The Oddero winery is a historical reality in the Barolo area: its origins date back to the early 1800s. The credit for having made the company grow and making it known nationally goes to Giacomo Oddero, but his daughter Mariacristina is now carrying on the business with the passion inherited from his father and the desire to keep up with the times and respect the Langhe terroir as much as possible.
In fact, with Mariacristina, the winery underwent the conversion to organic in 2001: Chemical substances are prohibited in the vineyard and interventions in the cellar are minimal: spontaneous fermentations and use of large Austrian, Slavonian and French oak barrels.
The Oddero estate has 35 total hectares, of which almost half cultivated in Nebbiolo for the production of Barolo and Barbaresco, distributed among the most prestigious crus of the Barolo denomination, such as Rocche di Castiglione, Bussia, Villero and Brunate.
In 2015 a new low environmental impact cellar was built, which joins the company's historic cellar. Oddero produces bottles of great thickness and character, which reflect the terroir of origin in a pure way.
