Veglio Michelino & Figlio
Veglio Michelino & Figlio is a small, family-owned and operated vineyard located in the beautiful Piedmont region in northwestern Italy. The winery produces red and white wines using traditional techniques inherited from previous generations.
Since the late 19th century, Veglio Michelino & Figlio has created a strong identity with the territory of Langhe producing the wine in three municipalities of Diano d'Alba, Serralunga d'Alba and Mont Albert.
Osvaldo Veglio, the son of Michelino and the current owner, brings his experience as a winemaker, thanks to the help of his brother Mark and supported by his son Simon.
The farm does not use chemical fertilizers in the soil and aims to minimise any contact with chemical substances.
Veglio Michelino & Figlio also produces 3 wines with lower content of histamines – Barbera d’Alba, Dolcetto d’Alba and Dolcetto Diano d’Alba (0.5 mg per liter versus average of 10mg pr litre). This result is achieved by using grapes that naturally have lower histamine levels and ageing the wine in stainless steel tanks instead of wood. Due to a lower content of histamines, the wines can be drunk by people who are allergic to histamines and who usually have headaches as a result of drinking red wine.
