The history of Giovanni Viberti winery begins when Cavalier Antonio Viberti buys the Locanda del Buon Padre. It was 1923 when Antonio began to produce wine for the guests of his Locanda in the basement of Buon Padre. At the time, the Dolcetto, Barbera and Nebbiolo were the 3 grapes vinified in purity by the Cavaliere and the sale of the wines took place almost exclusively within the Good Father. Growth In 1967 the second son Giovanni, assisted by his wife Maria, began his first steps inside the small family cellar. The presence of Mary becomes fundamental for the cellar and for the Good Father. A kitchen woman who is directly involved in the preparation of the dishes, she contributes with her work and her human value to the growth of the cellar, the wines and the family. In the 1970s the winery grew, thanks to the new premises where the first fermentations began in cement tanks. At the end of the 1980s, the first micro-vinifications of the individual vineyards began in temperature-controlled steel tanks and the sale, which was previously exclusively local, began to expand in European countries. The 1990s mark the beginning of export to the growing US market. The third generation Today the Giovanni Viberti winery continues its history with the third generation, which sees Claudio, the youngest son, directly involved in winemaking and management operations. Building on its past, today it can count on a production of 120,000 bottles a year, on a young and motivated staff and on the ambition to achieve ever new goals. Recently, a substantial investment has involved the Barbera grape variety, in particular for the production of the last born "La Gemella". From a friendship born among the school desks, an important agreement has been reached in recent years for the acquisition of Nebbiolo grapes from a historic parcel in the heart of the Monvigliero cru of Verduno. The Good Father Barolo remains at the center of family attention: in 2012, in its assembly, were added the Nebbiolo grapes coming from a vineyard of Perno di Serralunga d’Alba and from the cru Albarella, in the heart of the Barolo municipality. The Barolo Buon Padre continues to grow in its most classic style, thanks to the contribution, to date, of eight different Barolo crus, wisely cultivated respecting their biodiversity.
