Giribaldi is a wonderful family-owned winery that has seen three generations at the helm and has made its wine organically for many years. Their fine example of barbera is from a small single vineyard called Caj in Alba, nearly 400m above sea level.

It’s brimming with lively red fruit like cherries and mulberries, with a bit of cassis and damson in the mix. Eight months in oak barrels has left a light trace of spice. Lifted and tangy on the finish, it makes a superb partner for a rare steak or try it with a pan-fried duck breast.

Giribaldi wines are a family affair, they are made by Mario Giribaldi, the third generation of the family. His wines are a reflection of the people who make it, those who work in the vineyard under the all-day sun, or in the cold winter snow. Those who work all day and night in the winery during the harvest to watch the wine slowly transform, those who dress the bottle and look after its image, those who are ambassadors and pass on the passion of those who made it.

The Giribaldi winery began at the beginning of the 20th century and has been producing wines for three generations. In those days, times were hard, and agriculture was not only a means of income but also a real pride for those who loved their land even though it made them suffer so much. It was normal for them to make sacrifices for the land they were brought up on.

More Information


Piedmont, Italy

Piedmont is affected by a tug-of-war between two weather systems: the ice cold Alps and the warm Mediterranean temperature. This variation makes the whole area fill up with morning fog that slowly burns off during the day. This means the land higher up on the hills gets more sun. More sun = happy grapes = good wine. It's why Piedmont (or Piemonte) is considered to be Italy's best wine growing region.



Barbera is a red grape variety indigenous to Italy, best known for producing light, fruity wines in Piedmont. It is very much a wine "of the people", used to make approachable wines to be drunk young, in quantity!

Typically it has flavours of dark cherry, strawberries, plum, and blackberry. It can be aged in oak to add further complexity. It is a great compliment to simple BBQ food.

Today, thinking of the traditions and love for something alive like wine, I simply continue the work of my father and grandfather with the same passion and devotion. We are a family winery representing the third generation of the Giribaldi wine family, but above all, because we are one big family made up of 10 people, who every day proudly work all together, and share the same passion.
