Arione Mario winery, named after its creator, was founded in 1953 in the city of Canelli, located in the Piedmont region, in the province of Asti, in one of the best wineries in Italy. The winemaking traditions laid down by Arion Mario were passed down from generation to generation. Now the farm is managed by the son and grandson of Arion Mario, representing the third generation of the family.
