The village of Castiglione Tinella, where the Saracco winery is located, is between two of the most well-known Piedmontese towns for great wine and food: Alba and Santo Stefano Belbo. Luigi Saracco, the great-grandfather of Paolo, began growing Moscato grapes here in the early 1900s. Paolo Saracco grew up in the vineyards and even at an early age he had a desire to make a wine using his family’s name. Upon completion of his enological studies, he began experimenting not only with new winemaking
techniques but also a more modern vineyard management style. Paolo Saracco also has a four-star hotel, Albergo Castiglione, adjacent to the vineyards.
