Bartolomeo Racca bought the Montanello Estate from the Count of Castiglione Falletto in 1864. For many years it was the home of the first wine growers’ cooperative of the Langhe which united 36 families. This marked the start of the production and sale of the first Barolo wine. Today, five generations later, the Racca family still owns Montanello – managed by Alberto Racca and his sisters Maria Pia and Cristina.
