Azelia have been farming with devotion for 5 generations vines of the three native local varieties only: Dolcetto, Barbera and mostly Nebbiolo to produce DOC and DOCG wines which exalt the typicity, the tradition and the history of our hills. Hills which are world-renowned for their uniqueness and have officially been recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
100 years of history. 100 years since the foundation of Azelia.
This has been possible thanks to five generations, starting from an extremely poor reality, the one of the Piedmont of the early 1900.
In 1920 Cavalier Lorenzo Scavino began to vinify part of the grapes produced in the family’s vineyards, a small rural reality in the heart of the Langhe region, in Castiglione Falletto. His son Alfonso started enthusiastically to bottle the wine produced and thanks to Luigi’s father, Lorenzo, with perseverance and willpower, the wines were for the first time exported.
The hard work, the great experience and the moral strength can really create something extraordinary.
