Roberto Sarotto is a family winery, born in Barbaresco at the end of the 1700s and it has always been linked to the wine world. The real oenological activity was born and develops from 1870 to 1930-40, years during which it specializes in the production and winemaking of Dolcetto d'Alba, exporting it in the early Twentieth century also in England, a market that unfortunately lost with the arrival of wars and the decimation of vineyards by the "phylloxera". Because of these scourges, the oenological-commercial activity remains suspended until 1984, when Roberto became an oenologist and increased production until 1991, with the purchase of a winery of about 15 hectares in the Barolo area. From this moment on, it begins the production of ageing wines and the consequent expansion of the production range. New vines are introduced such as Arneis, Chardonnay, Brachetto, Nebbiolo by Barolo and Barbaresco and Cabernet Sauvignon. From the oldest vineyards of the farm, exposed to South-East, Barbera d'Alba Elena is produced, dedicated to her daughter Elenapaola.
The winery bases its productive activity on a deep awareness of traditional values, without fear of undergoing innovative methods.
It extends over a surface area of about 90 hectares, located in several municipalities in the Albese area and in the municipality of Gavi, depending on the DOC and DOCG cultivated there.
