Azienda Agricola Livia Fontana
Italy - Piemonte

Livia inherited the passion for viticulture from her father Ettore and she in her turn transmits with love and enthusiasm the values of those who preceded her in these vineyards. After more than two hundred years, the blood and fiber of the company are still united and today carried forward by the eighth generation while maintaining the history of the family’s objectives made with seriousness, commitment and love of the earth.

The Livia Fontana winery is a rare case in which business and family blend together blurring the boundaries of both, becoming an example of how the convergence of objectives makes the family united and the company successful. The winery is managed by Livia Fontana and her two sons, Michele and Lorenzo, who have been preceded by seven generations of the Fontana family. Each with their own roles brings energy, enthusiasm, competence and passion. The result is excellent wines that are appreciated throughout the world for the way in which tradition and new technologies merge in products of very high quality.
