The Santa Vittoria estate is perched on a steep hill on the left bank of the Tanaro river, overlooking the neighboring Langhe and dominating the valley below. Its tower dates back to 1386, and it stands in the eponymous village of Santa Vittoria d’Alba. Here, in soils of marine origin, consisting mainly of sand and calcareous sandstone, vineyards are ideal for producing red wines that are elegant, smooth, and of outstanding prestige. Since 2016, when renowned enologist Giorgia Lavagna joined Santa Vittoria, the winery has vinified, refined, and bottled its prestigious wines in their new cellars in Serralunga d’Alba.
