A 'ciabot' is a small building in a vineyard, used to store equipment. Berton was the firework maker who destroyed the roof. The lighthearted name is deceptive: here winemaking is taken very seriously.
It was in the 50s that Luigi Oberto and his father Giovenale began producing wine under their family name: an important surname which dates back to the 13th-century at least. The new winery, built near Ciabot Berton in Frazione Santa Maria, overlooks the wonderful landscape of the Barolo hills: to the north is the Matterhorn and the Monte Rosa massif; to the south the outline of the Alta Langa hills.
Today the business is run by Luigi’s children Marco and Paola and Marco’s wife Federica, who specialise in growing Nebbiolo grapes for Barolo in the historic crus of La Morra: Bricco San Biagio, Roggeri and Rive.
