From the vineyard to the table
Giovan Battista Burlotto, the Commendatore, gave birth to this farm, housed in his beautiful house with an adjoining private chapel, drawing grapes from vineyards located in the most suitable positions, (the Monvigliero Verduno, Cannubi in Barolo), which progressively convinced that it could be done only by providing quality wine grapes of primary value, had been purchased. the Commander, at a time when you were still in Langa to market wines in demijohns or even drums, introduced the innovative practices to offer the wines in bottle (with label on the French model which included the words Chateau), facilitating and encouraging the circulation, even
through participation in international competitions and exhibitions, where he promptly conquered gold medals and certificates of merit, the achievement of an image and status as a producer of excellence. Are 32 medals, which still appear on the nineteenth-century facade of the house that still hosts the company, captured from Turin to Milan to Paris, to be a palmares of which to be justifiably proud.
Awards, such as the status of "Suppliers to the Royal Family" and "Unique Superintendents of the Duke of Abruzzi's expedition to the North Pole" of 1899-1900, which confirm the centrality of the Cantina scene in the production of Barolo in the second half of 'nineteenth and early twentieth century.
Giovan Battista Burlotto, which was joined in the management of his son Francis, the direct successor after the death of Commander in 1927, he was instrumental in pioneering and also for the assertion of Pelaverga, vine and wine connoisseur, and of which he was convinced that thanks to his support, he could find in the Verduno their habitat and can become the center, undisputed, production.
a Francis, of his six children, he remained close, sharing business fortunes, only Ignatius, who became the heir of the history of the winery and the name G.B.Burlotto Comm.
Are you curious?
the origins of the term Pelaverga are two: a popular saying, which describes the wine as an aphrodisiac because of its suggestive name and a second more plausible than "peel the rod" as tearing the leaves to a twig, a practice used to present grapes in the sun, helping them to mature.
