The Oddero family has been making wines since the end of the nineteenth century in La Morra, a village in the Langhe, an area of elongated, vineyard-clad hills that stretch out to the right of the River Tanaro and the town of Alba.
The vineyards and farms have always belonged to the family, as is testified to by village documents dating back as far as the 1700's.

Lorenzo Oddero (1821-1903) was followed by Giacomo, then Giovanni, and finally Giacomo and Luigi, who are today helped by their daughters and by technicians and staff who have been dedicated to the family for many years.
