Le Marie

Barge, Pinerolo,
Piemonte, Italy

About the producer

Nestled in the somewhat overlooked sub-region of Barge in western Piedmont, near the French border, the Raviolo family meticulously crafts distinguished wines that serve as refreshing and authentic reflections of this lesser-known area. Their picturesque vineyards grace the foothills of Mount Viso, nearly 500 meters above sea level, where the soil, rich in red slate and minerals, imparts vigor, unique minerality, and vibrant acidity to their wines. Cultivating 10 hectares of indigenous varietals, including vines as old as a century, the family passionately embraces organic farming practices. This commitment to natural techniques yields wines of unparalleled purity, boasting a remarkable brilliance and fresh character. Le Marie specializes in crafting classic expressions of Dolcetto, Barbera, and Nebbiolo grapes, alongside two distinct sparkling wines.
