The agricultural holding “La Vecchia Cantina” came into being from Umberto’s and all the Calleri Family great dream, which through generations nurtured its passion: wine. A family indissolubly linked to the area of Albenga, since it has always dedicated itself with care and love to the production of excellent quality wines.

In 1982 Umberto started the refurbishment of the antique family building and made it adapt to host a cellar with modern and rational equipment for wine-making, marking that path which, through tradition and innovation, has guided “La Vecchia Cantina” up to now.

Arriving up to this point and with the conviction that his dream must go on, Umberto has passed the baton to his daughter Paola who, together with the precious collaboration of her family, especially her husband’s Ennio, will carry on this demanding path, but full of great satisfaction.

In order to guarantee the company’s future, Filippo is already at work, future enologist, to whom it has been given the task to follow in the footsteps of grandad Umberto, as the new representative of a family who knows, loves and deeply respects its own area and demonstrates it by producing high quality wines, innovating and experimenting, but always respecting traditions.
