Franco Ivaldi comes from a family traditionally dedicated to viticulture. His past in the farmhouse and in the family vineyards push him and become passionate about the world of wine, first as a sommelier and taster, then approaching winemaking. In 1995 he decided to inaugurate a new cellar assisted by his wife Caterina and his son Giorgio, winemaker.

The more traditional Barbera, Dolcetto, Moscato and Cortese vines, widely spread throughout Monferrato, are flanked by Freisa, a historic grape variety that today has a marginal space between the autochthonous Piedmontese and the Albarossa: a newly introduced grape that derives from a an entirely Piedmontese cross, Nebbiolo di Dronero (Chatus) for Barbera, studied in 1938 by Professor G. Dalmasso and experimented in the early 2000s by Tenuta Cannona (Experimental Wine-growing Center of the Piedmont Region).
