AZIENDA VINICOLA PALLADINO
Palladino Winery is a historic company in Serralunga d'Alba, located in the heart of the Barolo wine zone. Casa Palladino is located in the historical town center itself, where wine and life form an easy balance. Its history runs deep and goes back centuries: On the outer wall of the building is a plaque inscribed with the date 1870 and a story of a legacy of 80 thousand lire (the equivalent of about $55), money that was used for the production of wine. In 1974, the cellars were bought by the Palladino cousins who, after reconstruction in 1978, began producing wine to be bottled. Their philosophy is based on respect for the vineyards, which are worked manually according to tradition. They pay great attention to detail in order to bring a healthy, high quality product to the cellars, where the grapes are then treated used minimal invasive technology. Over the years, this philosophy has allowed Palladino Winery to successfully sell its wines, for the most part on the international market. www.palladinovini.com
