The organic grapes come from several vineyards, located in the southwestern area of the Barolo region, around Barolo, Monforte d'Alba and Novello. Planted in 1991, they have been organically farmed since 2010. Situated at 300 metres elevation, the vines are planted at a density of 3,700 vines per hectare and have south-easterly and southwesterly orientations. The Nebbiolo vines are Lampia clones and are grown on rootstocks K5BB and 420A. Guyot pruned and espalier trained, they are grown in claysilt, sand and silty soils, resulting in complexity in the resulting wine. The vines are carefully cultivated by hand, with green harvesting and thinning taking place to control yields and increase the concentration of flavour in the grapes. Green manure is employed to enhance the vitality of the soil and the cuttings from the grass cover crops are left on the soil, to help increase the nutrient value. In accordance with organic viticulture, copper and sulphur are used when necessary; herbicides and pesticides are not employed. Harvest takes place by hand.

The Brezza family own 12.5 hectares of vines split between the commune of Barolo (in Cannubi, Castellero and Sarmassa), the two-hectare Santa Rosalia estate just outside the Barolo DOCG zone between Diano d’Alba and the town of Alba itself, and two
further plots in Monforte d’Alba and Novello. Throughout the vineyards, the family practices an environmentally friendly approach to viticulture and the estate has been certified organic since the 2015 vintage. In the cellar, winemaker Enzo Brezza follows a
traditional approach with minimal intervention. In order to maintain freshness and purity, many of the wines are bottled with glass Vinolok closures.
