Tenuta Garetto farm, situated in Agliano municipality, was established at the beginning of the last century when vineyards, damaged by grape phylloxera, needed to be renewed. Old plantings were almost all replaced. Agliano area, during the first decades of the Italian Kingdom, already belonged to the so-called “Barbera d’Asti golden triangle” between Tanaro and Belbo rivers, where Barbera grape was grown almost unmixed; in other areas, on the contrary, it was farmers’ practice to rotate other grapevine species.

After years and generation changing, Barbera wine began to reach “distant” markets (Turin, Milan, Genoa, etc.), where it was highly appreciated.

Barbera wine was changing, from a simple drink for taverns it became “something more”. The development was obviously characterized by the gradual increasing of under vine areas, in order to manage at best end-product quality. With the present generation, in the person of Mr. Alessandro Garetto, vine-oenological production swerved towards the new concept of quality, optimizing all Barbera vine variety potentialities.

Nowadays, Tenuta Garetto farm is present on the global market with its 100.000 bottles and Alessandro Garetto’s goal is TO IMPROVE MORE AND MORE.
