Albino Rocca is a small family winery in the Piedmont region of Italy. The winery can trace its history back through four generations of the Rocca family, when Albino’s father Giacomo began selling grapes from the family vineyards in the 1940s, and later making his own wine.
In the 1960s, Albino Rocca inherited some of the family’s most prized vineyards, and founded the current winery. The hard work of Albino and his late son, Angelo, created the world-class winery that exists today. The winery combines traditional and modern winemaking techniques to create Barbaresco from the Nebbiolo grape, as well as other wines.
