At the young age of 15 years Andrea Ferrucci, driven by the passion for cooking, started to work for some small restaurants and pizzeria in the summer months.
Then, after three years of experiences in renowned pastry shops of Bologna, he started a path by side of famous international chefs: Pietro Leeman, Gualtiero Marchesi, Enrico Crippa, Carlo Cracco, Andrea Berton and Damiano Nigro.
The cooking of Andrea is based on creativity, even if it originates from classical elements of piedmontese tradition. Thanks to his experience around Italy, he interpretes they in a original and never common way. Vegetables, cooked with new techniques, are a very important element of his creations: playing with different consistences he creates unique tasty courses, but more ethical and healthy.
There are wineries that represent a territory, whereas others are the territory. For four generations, the owners have chosen to grow and vinify the best vineyards in the Roero and Langhe area. A choice that has given priority to the most suitable areas and which, over the years, has identified the vines able to interpret each terroir at its best by enhancing the expressive potential of one of the most famous wine districts in the world.
Today they manage over 50 hectares of vineyards on the historic hills of the Roero and Langhe area in the municipalities of Canale, Vezza d’Alba, Castellinaldo, Castagnito and Monforte d’Alba. Since 2007, in the Ginestra cru, the most prestigious and renowned area, they have been producing the oenological excellence of the Nebbiolo vine: Barolo.
