This company took its name from the area called La Campore on Napoleonic maps. The area, used for viniculture in the past due to its favourable exposure, is returning to its original vocation, following the purchase in 1974 by the Earls of Valperga of about 38 hectares of coppice wood with an annexed cottage, just a few hundred metres from the Masino Castle. Roberto Gabriele moved there from Milan to follow his dream of living in the country.
It all begin with the planting of a hectare of grapevines, and it continued with the remodelling of the cottage and, in 2003, with the creation of the new wine cellar. He shares the management of the 3 hectares today with his son Alessandro, a young oenologist trained in Alba. In a single structure at 450 metres of altitude, with the main growing technique the espalier – although some rows of Caluso and Trento arbours remain – La Campore is an established local business.
