The Travaglini Estate, based in the heart of the hills of the Gattinara region or Piedmont Italy, has been family owned since 1958. Arturo Travaglini passed on the winemaking tradition to his son Giancarlo and now the company is run by Giancarlo’s wife Liliana, his daughters Cristina and Cinzia and his son-in-law Massimo. Some call Gattinara the most aristocratic of Italian wines, as the region offers a number of incomparable sensory characteristics which help to make this great wine unique. The Gattinara is an austere, noble wine and pairs perfectly with game and roasts. It also goes very well with strong, well-structured dishes and hard blue cheeses.

Piedmont is the most "Frenchified" of all Italian wine regions. The long valleys of the Alpine foothills lead to easier travel to France's southern coast and inland than to the rest of Italy. It is perhaps for this reason that the Piedmontese have long practiced the most refined wine traditions of any Italian region. Terroir-based wisdom trickled down from early French masters (monks, typically) to this area.
Known mostly for their reds (but producing some excellent whites,) from the early ripening Dolcetto grape to the lofty, deep reds of Barolo and Barbaresco crafted from the Nebbiolo grape, these wines are clearly crafted using centuries of terroir-based winemaking.
