Giordano Vini was founded and is still based in the Langhe, the ancient heart of Piedmont's wine growing, a land of lush vineyards stretching as far as the eye can see, protected by the Unesco world heritage.
In Valle Talloria, a small hill town situated a few kilometers from Alba, the Giordano family has been producing classical wines since 1900. In more than 100 years, four generations have followed one another in the management of the winery with the common aim of an ongoing improvement in the quality of the product as well as that of the customer service, always keeping traditions alive.
Nowadays, Giordano Vini boasts a leading position among the Italian wine producing companies and engages both the national and the international markets.
The Company counts on two wine making facilities of property, one in Diano d’Alba in Piedmont and the other one in Torricella, Apulia.
