Alessandro Veglio’s winery is on my list of places to visit
You may have heard of the winery Mauro Veglio’s, and you guessed it: Alessandro is related to Mauro. Just below Mauro’s winery you will find Alessandro Veglio. He is a fairly new to the business, but his wines are excellent. And it always helps that he’s a great guy!
His lineup includes Gattera, a cru barolo located near the famous cedar tree. I recently drank his 2008 Gattera; a fabulous wine! If you visit him you might be lucky enough to meet his english bulldog Poldo. However, he only sticks around for a few minutes before he retreats to take a nap. Quite a character.
Norwegians, you will find the wines at Vinmonopolet as he recently started shipping wine to Norway! Yay! However, I am uncertain which of the wines will be available, but hey; a few wines are better than none!
How can you book a visit to the winery?
Alessandro doesn’t seem to have his own website (which reminds me I should talk with him about that) but you can contact him through the Agriturismo next door to the winery. Check it out here. If for some reason that doesn’t work, you can always as Manu at Cantina Comunale to call him for you!
