In the early 80s, Pierangelo Careglio, not satisfied with his factory job which left little room to individual initiative, decided to assist his father Matteo in conducting the modest family farm. At that time, 2 small property vineyards constituted only a residual part of the properties, in majority devoted to the cultivation of fruit orchards. This is when Pierangelo matures the certainty that it would be necessary to specialize the production in pointing it towards something more profitable and stable, such as the cultivation of the vine. Given the peculiarity of the territory, he realizes that it would be necessary to convert the fruit production into the cultivation of the vine; which would open potential opportunities towards a market increasingly oriented towards the consumption of quality wines.
However, Pierangelo is not satisfied to limiting himself to the production of quality grapes, so, supported by a friend enologist, he decides to undertake wine-making and bottling, adapting a small portion of the farm to winery and providing it with the necessary equipment. Pierangelo is ready to take the challenge and to move from a few productions of table wine sold in bulk to the production of bottled wine, marketing the first bottles of “Roero Doc” and “Arneis table wine” with the label “Careglio Matteo”.
