Michele Chiarlo #130
A vineyard is a living organism
Since 1956, Michele Chiarlo’s winery has been “vinifying the soul of Piedmont”, loving and developing the most incredible wine region in the world. The founder of the winery is Michele Chiarlo. Today, the winery is managed by his sons – Alberto (responsible for business development) and Stefano (oenologist). The first Barolo was bottled here in 1958.
Over the years, the family winery has grown significantly due to the acquisitions made in the best areas of Langhe. Today, the company owns about 110 hectares of vineyards, of which 60 are family-owned and 50 are used pursuant to long-term lease agreements. Autochthonous grape varieties are grown in the vineyards, and special attention is paid to Nebbiolo, Barbera, Cortese, and Moscato. The company’s fundamental goal is sustainable development. “For us, a vineyard is a living organism, a life that we want to know,” – the Chiarlo family emphasizes. Nowadays, Michele Chiarlo produces over a million bottles a year.
Wine Club Michele Chiarlo
“Be patient and sacrifice, buy only great vineyards to create great wines” – those words were said by Michele Chiarlo’s father – Pietro Chiarlo. Today, such great wines from great vineyards have become the wines of Michele Chiarlo. For everyone who wants to be a part of the history of the unique wine region, a special space has been created – Wine Club Michele Chiarlo, where you can get to know about wines and special offers. Club members enjoy privileged access to old and rare vintages, limited releases, unique labels, dinners with winemakers, and special events.
Palas Cerequio – the world of Piedmont’s best wines
An ambitious hospitality project, Palas Cerequio is the ideal destination for those who want to enjoy a holiday in a world where wine is the protagonist. The luxury palace is dedicated to the Barolo cru.
Palas Cerequio is located in one of the 6 areas that constitute the fiftieth UNESCO site in Italy: the landscapes of Langhe-Roero and Monferrato were declared the World Heritage Sites in 2014. Palas Cerequio rises gracefully in the ancient village of La Morra, located in the heart of an area, which is considered to be one of the most suitable areas for production of Barolo – one of the most prestigious wines in the world.
Architectural design, works of art, breathtaking views of the vineyards, local gastronomy and, of course, a selection of luxurious wines imply the highest pitch of hedonism.
The concept of the palace includes the “Past” and the “Future”. Four halls of the “Past” immerse guests into the atmosphere of antiquity. Each suite is named after a historic Barolo, elegantly furnished and contains a selection of bottles from the respective zones, which are stored in a glass case built into the wall: Cerequio, Cannubi, Rocche di Castiglione, Villero. The “Future” is minimalistic and natural: raw materials (stone, oak), breathtaking views, and a wellness spa. Palas Cerequio includes Vertigo, a service that allows you to create vertical and horizontal tastings of more than 400 labels from the nine main Barolo crus: Brunate, Bussia, Cannubi, Cerequio, Ginestra, Rocche dell’Annunziata, Rocche di Castiglione, Vigna Rionda, and Villero.
