Figli Luigi Oddero: A Legacy Rooted in History

The Figli Luigi Oddero winery holds a captivating history that traces back to its founder, Luigi Oddero, a visionary winemaker with an insatiable curiosity and a deep affection for his beloved land, the Langhe. Luigi, a true country gentleman, as depicted in Mario Soldati's enlightening 1975 interview published in the book Vino al Vino, embodied the perfect blend of pragmatism and far-sightedness.

Luigi Oddero's journey was an amalgamation of past energies and forward-thinking. While embracing technical innovation and progress, he remained unwaveringly connected to his family's heritage, rooted in winemaking and wine trade since the 1800s, thanks to his esteemed winemaking and wine merchant grandparents.

A Dedication to Native Grapes and Traditional Methods

Within his winemaking endeavours, Luigi Oddero, amidst his exploration of international grape varieties, always held a special reverence for the indigenous grapes of the Langhe. Nebbiolo, the region's noble variety, stood at the forefront, accompanied by other local traditional grapes such as Barbera, Dolcetto, and Freisa. Upholding Barolo's time-honoured winemaking techniques, Luigi embraced the use of large barrels, keeping the tradition alive.

Yet, Luigi's passion for his land extended far beyond vineyards alone. He cultivated hazelnut and peach trees, along with an array of typical fruits flourishing on the enchanting hills of the Langhe. His dedication to the region's diverse agricultural bounty mirrored his deep-rooted connection to the land.

Continuity through Tradition and Family

Today, Figli Luigi Oddero continues its storied legacy under the management of Luigi's wife, Lena, and their children, Maria and Giovanni. Honouring their great-grandparents, who initially embarked upon the winery's remarkable journey, Maria and Giovanni epitomize the seamless link between past, present, and future.

For Figli Luigi Oddero, tradition represents a steadfast thread connecting the winery's remarkable history, its vibrant present, and its promising future. The enduring commitment to excellence and the profound love for the Langhe region propel them forward, ensuring that the Figli Luigi Oddero legacy lives on.
