Based in Montà d’Alba in Piedmont, the Pelassa family has always produced wine from their own vineyard. Mario founded the Pelassa winery in 1960 and has since devoted all his time and passion to work in the vineyards alongside his wife, Maria Teresa. In 2000 their sons Davide and Daniele took over the 12 hectares domaine and modernised the winery. They also decided to focus on producing the three varieties which are the most suitable to the typical soil of the area: Arneis, Nebbiolo and Barbera, with the aim to make wine that express their terroir. They have certainly achieved their goal and today their wines are generating interest around the world, receiving great scores from international wine critics.
