I am in love with the wine and its world, its colors,
its perfumes, its charm.

I love its sense of belonging and its ability to create
sharing and emotion.


My passion is my job and my job is my passion: this is my huge fortune: questa è la mia grande fortuna.

It’s few years I’m working in my family winery, the Cascina Ballarin, and I had the opportunity to have two extraordinary professional life experiences in Australia (Torbreck) and in South Africa (Arcangeli), working with highly qualified winemakers and colleagues.
I learned so much and met extraordinary people, then became friends and part of my life. During one of these trips I began to do tests in my cellar independently.
The curiosity and ambition to create something of mine have always supported me on this path. Obviously I will continue with dedication and willingness to produce wine with my family but I’m happy and excited to start this new adventure.
After so many efforts, indecisions, tastings and second thoughts I finally see my dream come true. Today I feel 100% a (small) wine producer of Langhe and Roero.
