Oddero Poderi e Cantine

La Morra,
Barolo, Piemonte, Italy

About the producer

Oddero stands as one of Barolo's most historically rich and yet traditionally anchored producers, boasting a legacy spanning over 200 years. Situated in Santa Maria, a hamlet of La Morra, on the eastern slopes, the estate's familial roots in winemaking date back to the 18th and 19th centuries when the family ancestors produced their inaugural Barolo in 1878. Today, Giacomo's daughter Mariacristina, along with her son Pietro and niece Isabella, represent the seventh generation steering the family winery. Their unwavering commitment to enhancing the winery's reputation is evident through substantial investments in vineyards and cellars, aiming to sustain and elevate the estate's esteemed quality.

Giacomo Oddero, born in 1926, played a pivotal role in modernizing the winery, elevating wine quality, and expanding vineyard holdings with foresight into the significance of terroir. Few Barolo estates rival Oddero in the breadth and distinction of their vineyard holdings, e The diversified terrain, altitude, and exposure of these vineyards allow Oddero to showcase the multifaceted beauty of Barolo. From the austerity and verticality of Serralunga's Vigna Rionda to the sandy Marne di Sant’Agata Fossili found in Rocche di Castiglione and Villero with varying exposures (south-east and south-west), to the clayey Marne di San’Agata in Brunate (La Morra), and the Arenarie di Diano in Bussia Vigna Mondoca (Monforte d’Alba). Oddero adheres to a classic Nebbiolo protocol, aging wines in large, neutral botti. Early adopters of Austrian oak (Stockinger), they are now widely used in top Piedmontese cellars. In addition to Barolo, Oddero produces a delightful Barbera d’Alba and an exceptional Langhe Nebbiolo sourced entirely from Barolo-zoned fruit, both delivering exceptional quality and value. The straight Barolo serves as a hallmark for the winery, offering tremendous value and originating from three top Crus: Bricco Fiasco, Bricco Chiesa, and Capalot. The winery's remarkable lineup extends to Riesling, Dolcetto, Barbera d’Asti, Moscato d’Asti, and Barbaresco Gallina, underscoring the historical significance of Oddero in the region.
