ABOUT THE WINERY: Following Alberto (class of 1892 who ran an inn near Turin) an early Pioneer of Francone wines in Piemonte, Giovanni Battista took the company over from his mother Teresa and began making wine in 1940. In Neive, in 1964, Giovanni Battista and his sons Mauro and Silvano fulfilled their dream of building an imposing new winery, where the company is still based today. Today brothers Marco and Fabrizio Francone, with the invaluable help of dad Mauro, manage the vineyards and the winery.
