Born in Milan but with a Piedmontese family and education, Andrea Ribaldone grew up in the kitchens of the Restaurant La Fermata in Alessandria, with its founder Riccardo Aiachini, who he considers his master of life and work. He was awarded there his first Michelin Star in 2003. In March 2017 he left Alessandria for the Langhe, key centre of Italian catering, and opened Osteria Arborina in Frazione Annunziata di La Morra.
Born and raised in the hills of the Langhe, wine is Sandra Vezza’s one true love.
Over the course of this enduring and passionate love affair, she was drawn to Barolo for her own winery. It was here that she learned to understand the unique and wonderful qualities imparted by this patch of land.
Every bottle of L”Astemia Pentita encapsulates several moment in time: the rain showers, the energy of warm days, the freshness of spring, the silence of long winters, and, most importantly, the work of the people who tend to the vineyard and its secrets.
Where unchanging elements meet the constant flux of nature and humanity, L”Astemia Pentita is born. This alchemy stems in part from Sandra Vezza herself, driven by her motto “dynamic even when standing still”, a mantra that guides her through the worlds of art and business, today embodied by her wine.
