Located in the heart of the Langhe hills of Italy, the Vietti wine cellar was founded in the late 1800s by Carlo Vietti. The estate has grown over time and our vineyards include some of the most highly prized terroirs within the Barolo and Barbaresco wine-growing region. In 2022, Vietti was named Winery of the Year by Antonio Galloni. In 2022, our wines were scored highly by Antonio Galloni, James Suckling, Gambero Rosso, I vini di Veronelli, Wine & Spirits, Vitae, Wine Spectator, Guida Essenziale ai Vini di Italia, Falstaff, Slow Wine, Bibenda, Decanter, and Robert Parker.

Vietti is committed to the safety and experience of our Associates. In 2022, investments in improving Associate conditions and reviewing our Associates wellbeing were priorities. A new Italian program referred to as Welfare allows Associates to utilize a fund to pay family, health and wellbeing expenses encouraging investment in their total wellbeing.

The 2019 vintage of Vietti’s owned vineyards was the first vintage in the company’s history certified to European Union (EU) organic standards. Organic certification includes prohibiting genetically modified organisms (GMO), artificial fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides. As Vietti grows, we have committed to maintain the percent of hectares that are certified organic. Associates rigorously and meticulously clear weeds by hand, plant cover crops to prevent weed regrowth, and maintain soil fertility every year. Customers will be rewarded with their first taste when the 2019 vintage is released in 2023.

Vietti is committed to minimal environmental impact and enhancing the land since our inception. We use 100% sustainable packaging including the plastic put around our boxes for shipping which are made from 100% recycled materials. In 2019, we eliminated single-use plastic water bottles, and instead began providing large water coolers with reusable bottles in the vineyards. Vietti uses Sandri Trasporti for our Italian wine transportation. Sandri Trasporti uses low-emission vehicles and wine logistics to minimize the shortest route and reduce the number of trips by maximizing the load per trip.

In 2022, Vietti connected with local communities through several targeted sponsorships including Association Collina degli Elfi, an organization that supports children with cancer and Anvol, an organization with volunteers that support individuals with cancer including transportation, home assistance, and visits. Sponsorships of a local volleyball team and Auction Fires in Sardina, supporting the reconstruction project of an old hiking trail, were also important partnerships during the year.
Vietti partnered with The Roots Fund which provides resources and financial support through educational scholarships, wine education, mentorship and job placement. The organization invests in Black, Indigenous and Latino wine communities to provide opportunities to those seeking a career or education in all aspects of wine. Vietti sponsored a person in 2022, offering a paid apprentice experience at the winery along with a free apartment, meals, and car.
In addition, Vietti is proud to be a part of the Big Bench Community Project. A vision of American designer Chris Bangle and wife Catherine, the giant red bench was installed in September 2022 at Castiglione Falletto and is one of 288 to-date. The initiative, strongly supported by the Vietti Agricultural Company and Municipal Administration, has the aim of highlighting the value of the territory and becoming a driving force for tourism. Tourists, solo travelers and families can stop for pictures and take in the views of the intangible Heritage of UNESCO. The goal of the project is to have 350 Big Bench locations by end of 2023, allowing special views across the globe to be enjoyed and remembered forever.
