In 1999, when we decided to buy “La Badina”there was only a 17th century farmhouse haunted by vegetation; There wasn’t even a road to get there. “ It is foolish to buy“La Badina” a lot of people said, but we did believe in its potential. We could clearly hear the history of those old stones once belonged to the marquis La Marmora; We could perceive the sacred tradition of those yards that had been producing wine for centuries.
Here, in Lessona, on Biella’s hills at the foot of the Alps, the valuable grapevines of Nebbiolo found a place that, more than anywhere else, knows how to enhance its elegance.
Ermido brought back to life the wine yards from the wild wood. Nowadays the wine yards are run by his daughters Linda and Sara. La Badina is a niche production. Only 1.2 acres of wine yards in a natural amphitheater protected from the winds on a ground made of sandy marine soil that gift our wines a unique scented bouquet.
