Azienda Agricola Lalù
Lara e Luisa
We are two city girls who fell in love with wine, and married a dream: we wanted to produce our very own wine, nestled among the Langhe hills. We first met as classmates at university, and once we graduated, we moved to the countryside, near La Morra, where we acquired our professional skills from leading local vintners. We have never let difficulties stop us. Despite often being knee-deep in mud, like a couple of tomboys, feminine sensitivity and determination have always inspired our work. Grapevines are plants that rise upwards before they start to reach out and cling: that's precisely why these plants won us over and became so tightly bound to our lives. That is why we created the Lalù winery in 2019. We grow Nebbiolo and Barbera vines and make wine from our grapes at a small winery in Serralunga d'Alba.
Our fascination with wine-growing prompted us to get better acquainted with the world of agriculture. Since we wanted to expand our knowledge, we chose to deepen our understanding of the element from which all things descend: the earth.
In 2015 we planted our first Nebbiolo vine shoots. We developed our project fully respecting nature's rhythms: for four years we tended our vines in the Langhe area and learnt how to cultivate vineyards, and then spent three years waiting for our very first harvest.
Today we grow three and a half hectares of vineyards in the municipalities of Monforte d'Alba and La Morra. We believe in the way of life that values common goods like health and biodiversity, which is why we decided to practice organic viticulture.
The small cellar that currently contains our vats and barrels was set up in Serralunga d'Alba, in the former premises of a workshop. It is here that we make our wines: Barbera d'Alba, Langhe Nebbiolo and Barolo le Coste di Monforte. We produce genuine and authentic wines by following simple procedures and paying meticulous attention to product cleanliness and integrity.
In 2019, the year of our first harvest, we produced 5000 bottles. Once all our vineyards become productive, the figure will increase to about 20.000 bottles, the maximum possible amount if we choose to process our grapes only.
