Presentation of the vineyard
In 1904, Prunotto started as a joint union between several wine farmers. The times became more difficult in the 20th and the company went bankrupt in 1922. Alfredo Prunotto saw an opportunity to buy the company and started, among other things, exports of Barolo and Barbaresco wines to the United States. In 1956, Alfredo Prunotto resigns and sells the company to his friend Beppe Colla, who begins to structure the vineyard into different Cru areas. In 1989, the Antinori family took over the distribution of the Pronotto wines and later, in 1994, they bought the entire winery when the brothers Colla retired. Prunotto is located just outside Alba, in the middle of the Langhe region on the right side of the Tanaro River.
