In 1954, in the village of Castel Boglione in the Piedmont region of northwestern Italy, don Carlo Montrucchio and a group of 50 wine producers founded a cooperative society called the Antica Contea di Castelvero, the ancient name of Castel Boglione. This is still the current headquarters of the Araldica Group, makers of Italian Christmas Wine, along with several premium Italian wines.
The goal of the cooperative was, and still is, to add value to its members’ labor by sharing their experience, resources, and ideas. Quality Sangiovese, Pinot Grigio, and Moscato grapes are sourced from a range of private growers and cooperatives to make the three varieties of Italian Christmas Wine.
