Conterno Fantino was founded by the present owners in 1982. Claudio Conterno and longtime friend Guido Fantino shared bodly innovative ideas, with a solid basis in classic vineyard management and wine-marking skills. In 1994, they built a new, state-of-the-art winery high up in Monforte d'Alba, within the Bricco Bastia terroir.
This became the heart of their estate, scenically located with a view of the entire Alpi Piemontesi range, and including vinification and maturation areas, bottling ranges and warehouse space. Here, technology and vinicultural know-how play fundamental roles. However, the Conterno Fantino philosophy is firmly based on meticulous vineyard management, for great Piemontese wine starts in the vineyarde.
