La Spinona: tradition meets innovation


The winery is composed of 24 hectares of estate vineyards and 4 cascine (farmsteads: La Spinona, La Ghiga, Albina, and Bergera). The heart of Barbaresco, a town in the UNESCO region of Piedmont, is home to 20 hectares of these vineyards. 

The cultivated vine varieties include Nebbiolo for Barbaresco, Nebbiolo, Barbera, Dolcetto, and Chardonnay, the only white grape variety. The remaining 4 hectares are located in the town of Novello, in a fantastic vineyard which enjoys full southern exposure for the cultivation of Nebbiolo for Barolo. 

The winery also owns a herd of Piedmontese Fassona cattle, using the manure to fertilise the vineyards. 



Pietropaolo Berutti runs La Spinona, supported by his father Gualtiero, continuing a family tradition of viticulture and winemaking that spans five generations.

Pietropaolo holds a degree in oenology and oversees the winemaking and cellar ageing processes, as well as marketing the wines,  managing to combine innovation with family tradition. 

Gualtiero, who has worked as a veterinarian for years, manages the cultivation of the vineyards with the utmost respect for the environment.
