La Spinetta is a family-owned winery located in the Piedmont region of northwest Italy. The winery was founded in 1977 by Giuseppe and Lidia Rivetti, and today it is run by their three sons: Carlo, Bruno, and Giorgio. La Spinetta's vineyards cover a total of 165 hectares, with most of the vines located in the Langhe area. The winery produces a wide range of wines, including Barolo, Barbaresco, Barbera d'Alba, Moscato d'Asti, and various white wines.
In 1997 La Spinetta finalized the purchased of the Valeirano vineyards, which are located in the municipality of Treiso. This vineyard’s soil is mainly of marine origin, similarly of those in the Serralunga d’Alba area. Barbaresco Valeirano is an elegant wine. The soils at Valeirano are very similar to those from Serralunga which results in a Barbaresco which has some deep links to Barolo. This Barbaresco cru is characterized by great longevity and minerality.
