Camparo di Mauro Drocco all began in the summer of 1980, when Mauro decided to make wine from a few vineyards left to him by his father just east of the town of Barolo itself in Piedmont, Italy. He remembers playing in the rows as a child, and for their father the idea of poisoning the earth, which was and is our home, was inconceivable. Mauro started to build the Camparo estate slowly, not liking the conventional winemaking methods everyone around him was using. He experimented with more ecological and organic techniques, and in 2000 Camparo di Mauro Drocco was one of the first estates in the area to receive its organic certification. Their family-run estate consists of prized south and south-east facing gentle slopes, crucial for the famously slow ripening Nebbiolo. They follow the mantra that great wine always starts in the vineyard. In the cellar the wines are also made in a very traditional sense, with slow, natural fermentation lasting up to four weeks, and élevage in large neutral oak barrels, followed by extended bottle-ageing before release.
