The history of the Orsolani winery began at the end of the nineteenth century, when Giovanni Orsolani and his wife Domenica returned from America. Domenica opened a restaurant, and Giovanni worked in the vineyard and in the cellar producing traditional Canavese wines. Four generations later, the family still focuses on classic, organic farming; and are champions of the grape that made the Canavese famous: Erbaluce.
Above is an adorable, nerdy, but surprisingly informative short film about Erbaluce and the fascinating Canavese region.
