Chef Marc Lanteri was born to Italian parents in the alpine town of Tende, France in the Roya Valley, strategically located between the Mediterranean Sea and Piemonte, in 1968. Marc’s gastronomic DNA, that would dominate his personality, began to express itself in his infancy. His culinary roots are buried deep in the high mountain town where his parents nurtured his early gastronomic curiosity; his father through his talent for cultivating organic fruits and vegetables in the family garden, and his mother who used her copious collection of recipes to transform her husband’s bounty into delicious traditional dishes.
Marc’s formal culinary arts education began in hospitality high school of Mentone, France. Marc’s acquisition of his first Michelin Star at Delle Antiche Contrade, a restaurant in Cuneo in 2004, affirmed his unmistakable haute cuisine style, a style that became the brand “Marc Lanteri.” In December 2008, Marc and Amy opened Il Baluardo restaurant in Mondovì (CN) where they reacquired the Chef’s one star Michelin rating in 2011.
The culinary couple moved to their new gastronomic home in Castello Grinzane Cavour in 2015 where they now delight locals and visitors alike under the watchful eye of Count Camillo Benso di Cavour, the former resident of the castle in the 19th century. When not in the kitchen with his brigade, Marc enjoys working in his vegetable garden and foraging for aromatic herbs, mushrooms and truffles as well as spending family time with his two children.
Segni di Langa
Gian Luca and Alessandra’s project was born in 2011, it is a young entity that started from scratch. Thanks to their strong passion and iron will they have managed to give birth to their small company which is located up on the hills of Roddi.
The main activity is the wine cellar along with two rooms set for hospitality.
They produce wines in total respect of the environment, its territory, and varietal purity. They interpret each vineyard in an exclusive way, by carefully monitoring the fermentation process as well as following, and not directing, the evolution of the wine itself without any clarification or filtration. This is the expression of the great exclusivity of the union between vine and Langa.
