Fabio Oberto - Barbera d'Alba
Overview: Andrea Oberto grew up working on his family’s farm in the small town of La Morra just South of Verduno but spent the early part of his adulthood as a truck driver outside of the family business. When his father passed unexpectedly, he returned home to manage the farm and devoted his life to tending to the 3 ha of vineyards he inherited from his father. In 1978, Andrea shifted the estate’s focus from supplying fruit to the local co-operatives to making its own wines.
After 22 years working with his father at the family winery, Fabio Oberto has started a business of his own: Fabio Oberto 'La Collina di Dioniso' gives continuity to the family's vision of making wine true to the great terroir of the area, shared by farmers with same ideals, ambitions and values.
