Discovering the Monsordo Bernardina Estate
The culture of the countryside has always been the fuel, the gears and the engine of our system.
This is a unique countryside, chiseled out over the centuries by the union of the work of nature and human intervention, and it is included on the UNESCO list of human heritage sites.
The entirety of the hills, the vineyards, cultivated fields, hazelnut orchards and buildings making up the Monsordo Bernardina Estate has to be read like a book: if you follow the pathway that is specially designed for you, you will discover the feeling that Ceretto family has for sustainable agriculture and winegrowing, love of gastronomy, art and architecture.
These are inseparable elements that talk to each other in a picturesque natural theatre, painted by four seasons with colours and perfumes that are always changing.

The history of the Monsordo Bernardina Estate
This is a 19th Century Estate, which was very dear to Victor Emmanuel II of Savoy: the view from here takes in the three registered and guaranteed designation of origin (docg) areas of Roero, Barolo and Barbaresco. The old farmhouse, with 100 hectares of land, was rented by our family in 1989 (purchased in 2000) and gradually converted into the headquarters: work is carried on side by side for the agricultural company, production and refining of the main labels, administration offices and logistics. In 2009, to satisfy the creative urge that drives all the artistic and architectural projects of the family, the construction of Acino rounded things off, providing a permanent installation overlooking the vineyards and the landscape, that became the nerve centre of the operations of reception in the winery and exploration of the local area.
