The winery "Prunotto S.R.L." is located in the municipality of San Cassiano (Alba) in the Italian region of Piedmont. Its origins date back to 1923, when Alfredo Prunotto took over the "Vini delle Langhe" cooperative, founded in 1904. There were no vineyards of their own, but the best grapes from the Albese, Langhe and Monferrato areas were purchased and processed. This philosophy was maintained for a long time, and it was not until 1990 that the first seven hectares were purchased. In 1956 Afredo Prunotto sold the property to his friend Beppe Colla. Finally, in 1989, it was taken over by the Antinori empire. Today the vineyards cover 44 hectares in the best positions of the following areas. Among the premium wines are the Barbaresco "Bric Turot", the Barbera d'Asti "Costamiòle" and "Fiulòt", "the Barolo "Bussia", the Dolcetto d'Alba "Mosesco", the Monferrato "Mompertone" (60% Barbera and 40% Syrah), and the Roero Arneis. About 800.000 bottles of wine are produced annually.
