The Campè winery was established on the 8 hectares of Nebbiolo vineyards of the same name and represents the evolution of the LA SPINETTA production in respect to the great red wines of Piedmont. Though the vineyard is situated in an area that is less well-known for Barolo production, the soil, vineyard exposure and microclimate are extraordinary. The average age of the vines in the Campè vineyard is 45-60 years. Barolo Campè is vinfied from the grapes coming from the upper part of the vineyard, while Barolo Garretti is produced from Nebbiolo planted in the lower portion.
LA SPINETTA purchased the 8 hectares of vineyard in 2000 and less than 3 years later, in 2003, the new, state-of-the-art Barolo cellar was finished. In addition to our Barolo wines, our Barbera d’Alba Gallina and Langhe Nebbiolo are also produced here.
The very best selection of Barolo Campè is bottled exclusively in magnum and released as a Riserva, 10 years after harvest. The grapes for the Riserva Magnum come from the finest part of the Campè vineyard, in the upper center, where the vines not only get the best sun exposure, but also where all work is carried out without the use of tractors. Workers tend the vineyard on foot and manually, and twice-a-year plowing is carried out by Giorgio and one of his work horses, either Morro or Pipo.
The Campè winery is open for visits to import and distribution customers only. However, we are happy to receive private visitors 7 days a week, by appointment, at La Spinetta in Castagnole Lanze as well as at La Spinetta Casanova in Tuscany.
