The estate is located in the heart of the Langhe region of Piedmont in the San Rocco Seno d’Elvio township.
Marco and Vittorio Adriano cultivate vines and vinify exclusively with their own grapes to make wines that wholly reflect the terroir. The Adriano family began winemaking at the turn of the last century when Giuseppe, a tenant farmer began to cultivate vines. His son Aldo joined him in the enterprise and together they bought and planted a small estate.

In turn, the grandchildren Marco and Vittorio, cultivated the love for their land and its fruits, making the company grow: It is the 1994 harvest when they decide to wine their grapes by bottling the first bottles with the label Adriano.

Nowadays, the estate encompasses 50 hectares, of which 10 hectares are devoted to hazelnuts, 10 are forested or lie fallow and 30 hectares are given over to Nebbiolo and Barbaresco, along with Barbera, Dolcetto, Freisa, Sauvignon Blanc and white Moscato vines.
