Roero Arneis
Elisa

“La vigna d’Elisa”, was the appellation used by our family to name the grapes conducted by Elisa Elia, coming from the only vineyard in Roero we possess in Varinere of Priocca. Vinified by Secondo, his son, only after she passed away in 1973. The vineyard were so called di “Elisa” and as such the wine produced from these grapes still carry the name of this great women that managed the winery during the dark ages of the Second World War.
