A family tradition, born and raised among the hills that connect Grinzane Cavour to Serralunga. A passion for wine and the work in the vineyards that has been handed down through the decades. The winery, Bruna Grimaldi, has grown over the years, thanks to its dedication to the great Langa wines and the care in the selection of the most suitable vineyards for the production of Barolo.
Giacomo Grimaldi started to sell grapes in 1957, while Giovanni Grimaldi produced the first wine in the 60s, selling it by the litre, and since the 90s Bruna Grimaldi and Franco Fiorino, the present owners, have turned the business into a modern winery.
And, in 2013, their son Simone, enotechnician and student at the University of Enology, brings his young passion in the cellar. It is a family affair and the knowledge that has been handed down and improved over the years, focused on the vines and the careful and respectful work that follows the vine’s life cycle.
The cellar is located in a building of the early XX century and the venue has been used for this purpose since the 50s.The use of technology has been reduced and the wine-making started to focus on the ageing in large wooden barrels and tonneaux.
With regards to ageing their idea is very clear: storing it in wood to complete and enhance the quality of the wine, especially in the case of Barolo, Barbera and Nebbiolo d’Alba and its use depends a lot on the weather conditions of the year. In 2013 was built a new winery dedicated to aging, where the wine is aged in barrels and tonneau, and the new stock room.
The philosophy of Bruna Grimaldi is simple and essential: the quality of wine starts in the vineyard and is determined especially through the green harvest. Thanks to an attentive selection of the product they bottle a healthy wine which represents its region.
