Overview
More
Fontechiara is a small winery located in the Northeast area of Piedmont. We produce high quality red wines, that are faithful expression of the territory as they are made with native local grapes such as the famous Nebbiolo and the ancient Vespolina. We receive tourists for tours and wine tasting together with homemade delicacies, local charcuterie and cheeses especially selected to bring out the best flavors and characteristics of each wine.
