Several documents found in the historic residence in Via delle Viole indicate that the Locanda del Buon Padre was already open and serving travellers in 1890. The house and the estate were bought by the Viberti family in 1923, when Antonio and his family opened a grocery and wine shop and began producing Nebbiolo for their inn. His son Giovanni continued the restaurant and wine-making business with his wife Maria, adding excellent vineyards, which today are part of Barolo Menzioni Geografiche such as Bricco delle Viole, San Pietro and La Volta.
Maria’s culinary skills - today at the heart of the Buon Padre - were passed on to the third generation: the Vibertis’ connection with their land and the traditions of the Langhe has never been broken and is evident both in their wines and their fabulous food.
