The history of the Balbi Soprani estate intertwines with that of the Capetta family. Originally from Santo Stefano Belbo, in the province of Cuneo, an area home to ancient winemaking traditions, the Capettas have been winemakers since the early 1900s.

In 1953, Francesco Capetta started the practice of vinifying great Piedmont wines after a careful selection of plots yielding grapes that ensure quality and excellence. In the 1970s, the Capetta family bought over 20 hectares of vineyards on the hills around the municipalities of Santo Stefano Belbo and Cossano Belbo, in the eastern part of the Langhe, on the border with the area of Asti.
Those lands, together with others that were either directly managed or handled through selected suppliers, would later become the very heart of the Balbi Soprani estate, as well as the family’s homonymous wine project. The idea of an exclusive brand and a range of wines made to promote and enhance the most successful DOC and DOCG wines and sparkling wines of Piedmont overseas originated from these very vineyards.

A project that has unfolded in a few years’ time, boasting wines and sparkling wines by Balbi Soprani and guaranteed by the Capetta family: they have garnered awards in the most prestigious wine competitions and have been successfully embraced by consumers and lovers of good Italian wine.
