Marchesi di Grésy - Boutinot

Meet the Producer

Marchesi di Grésy has long been recognised as one of Piemonte's top producers.

With four separate estates across Langhe and Monferrato - home of Piemonte's greatest wines -Marchesi di Grésy has 45 hectares of vineyards, with 11 ha dedicated to the production of Nebbiolo for its flagship Barbarescos, Martinenga Camp Gros and Martinenga Gaiun.

The Martinenga vineyard is considered by many to be the best single vineyard in Barbaresco. This breathtaking natural amphitheatre surrounding the winery has been exclusively owned by the di Grésy family since 1797. It is here that grapes from each of the estates are taken to be vinified.

Alberto di Grésy owns and manages the estate. In 1973 he began production of wines under the di Grésy name - vinifying their own estate grapes rather than selling to other local producers as in the past. His philosophy is simple but effective; to produce wines using the best available technology that respect tradition and promote the character and personality of the terrain and grape variety.

A Note on Sustainability

Marchesi di Grésy is committed to preserving and enhancing its natural resources, giving full attention to saving energy, reducing its environmental impact, increasing biodiversity and studying its vines.

To minimise its impact on the environment and the landscape of the surrounding hills, the estate has completely buried its barrel cellar, helping to reduce soil erosion. Furthermore, the hygroscopic and insulating properties of the soil naturally maintain an optimum temperature and humidity for maturing the wine without any expenditure of energy.

Part of the roof of the barrel cellar and of the company parking lots have been covered with photovoltaic panels, and the amount of electricity they generate annually meets the winery's needs.

Above the barrel room, a large terrace hosts a charming aromatic garden. Aside from creating a lovely setting for tasting wines, it is a natural oasis that helps to preserve the microclimate and biodiversity through the protection of insects, especially bees, which contribute to pollination and regulate harmful vineyard pests.
