Established with an objective deeply rooted in the love and pride for their homeland, the Roero Producers' Consortium, or "Consorzio di Tutela Roero", officially came into existence on the 4th of March, 2014, as acknowledged by a decree published in the Official Gazette. This consortium stands as a symbol of unity, dedication, and the collective passion of wine producers from Roero. It aims to not just safeguard the unique identity of Roero DOCG wines but also to advance, promote, and provide accurate information to consumers. Above all, it zealously looks after the interests associated with this revered denomination.
Under the visionary leadership of President Francesco Monchiero, the consortium emphasizes the vital importance of unity among producers. For him, it is not just about promoting the wine but showcasing the richness and essence of the entire Roero territory. This unity and shared mission is evident in the growing strength of the consortium. With over 200 dedicated members, encompassing producers and growers, the Consortium oversees more than 1,000 hectares of Roero Denominazione vineyards. This vast expanse of fertile land leads to the production of approximately 6 million bottles annually. Remarkably, over 60% of this production finds its way to international shores, testifying to the global appeal of Roero wines.
Central to Roero's wine legacy are the native grapes Arneis and Nebbiolo. These grapes, intrinsic to the Roero territory and cultivated with immense dedication for centuries, serve as the backbone of the Docg. Interpreted and nurtured with utmost care, these grapes, under the hands of Roero producers, are transformed into wines that capture the very soul of the region.
In essence, the Consorzio di Tutela del Roero stands not just as a consortium, but as a testament to the timeless heritage, unity, and commitment of the Roero wine community.
