The wine producers of Roero were joined in the Roero Producers’ Consortium (Consorzio Tutela Roero), acknowledged with a decree published in the Official Gazette, on the 4th of March 2014, with the objective to perform the functions of protection, advancement, promotion, consumer information and general care of the interests related to the “Roero” Docg.

The current President of the Consortium is Francesco Monchiero who underlines the importance of the union between producers and of their ability to promote all together not only the wine but the whole territory.

Today there are more than 300 consortium members made up of producers and growers, and more than 1,000 hectares of Roero Denominazione (Designation) vineyards, with a total of about 6 million bottles produced, of which more than 60% are exported.

Arneis and nebbiolo are the two base grapes of the Docg: native grapes, typical of this territory, cultivated for centuries and interpreted with great care by the Roero producers.
