"Poderi e Cantine Oddero" is a historical brand of Barolo. For generations it was under the management of masculine hands, but today it's the property of Mariacristina and Mariavittoria, daughters of Giacomo Oddero, the patriarch of Barolo and a well-known personality in the Langhe and beyond.
With knowledge passed down through the ages and up-to-date production technology, patience and tenacity, the winery dedicates total attention to the vinification, from pruning and pressing to selection and aging. The Oddero vineyards are distributed in the best-positioned plots (sôri) in the hills of the zone, including Barolo and Barbaresco.
