The Elvio Cogno Winery produces the principle wines of the Langhe, in Italy. The 15- hectare winery is located in the town of Novello, in the province of Cuneo, where they produce Barolo DOCG. The hills, recently named a UNESCO World Heritage site, are renowned for their history and beauty. In 1990, fourth generation winemaker Elvio Cogno bought an 18th-century farmhouse and vineyard in Italy’s Piedmont region. It was a humble beginning to what has become one of the most respected winemaking operations in the Ravera Cru of Piedmont. Cogno, who was born in Novello, spent decades developing vineyards he felt had untapped potential. Twenty-nine years later, his son-in-law Valter Fissore, who worked alongside him for 25 years, continues to realise his vision.
