Vineyard Info

At La Morra everyone calls us Ballarin, but our real name is Viberti. Ballarin has been the family nickname for generations. In 1928, our great-grandfather and grandfather, after working for several years as farmers in another farm, began to build their house, cellar, stable and barn. For many years, the company activities were centred on the cultivation of fruit, grapes, cereals, hazelnuts, raising cattle and producing wine. Our transformation and specialization in viticulture began 25 years ago. Today at Cascina Ballarin we grow grapes in our own vineyards in La Morra, Monforte d’Alba, Novello and produce wine in our own cellar. Barolo is our main wine. Different types of Barolo are produced separately from different vineyards in order to preserve the nuances that different types of soil offer. In addition, we produce Barbera d’Alba , Dolcetto d’Alba , Langhe Rosso e Langhe Bianco. The entire family works at Cascina Ballarin, each member taking care of different tasks: from the work in the vineyards to the production of the grapes to the wine-making process. After ageing the various wines for the specific amount of time, they are bottled and sold under our own name CASCINA BALLARIN. The final quality of our wines is at the core of all operations, along with the respect of the environment and nature and the employment of sustainable practices. The grapes for Cascina Ballarin Tre Ciabot Barolo come from vineyards in La Morra, Novello and Monforte d'Alba, caracterised by a South-East exposure and a Limestone, blue marlstone soil.
