The Pio Cesare winery was founded in 1881 by the great great-grandfather Cesare Pio - one of the very first wine producers to believe in the great potential and quality of Barolo, Barbaresco, Barbera and in the other great wines of Piemonte. For five generations, the Pio Cesare family produces traditional Piemontese wines in its ancient cellars, located in the center of the town of Alba. The cellars walls date back to the Roman Empire period, 50 B.C. Recently, significant investments have been made to rebuild and restructure the cellars and the winery's facilities. The production of the wines of Pio Cesare is intentionally limited in order to maintain their high quality. Year after year, the wines are ranked among the world's best and most highly regarded. The winery's dedication to quality and respect for tradition and terroir, has allowed Pio Cesare to reach a prominent position among the wine producers of Piemonte.
