Three generations of the Demarie Giovanni family have called the region and the village of Vezza d’Alba home. The family’s hard work, expertise and love of winemaking have, since its founding in 1957, carved out 74 acres that yield spot-on examples of the region’s special terroir.
True to Uva Import’s mission of sourcing the best wines from family owned and operated vineyards, the Demarie story epitomizes that strategy. Paolo and his wife Monica bring backgrounds in finance to the table – and bolster that with a consuming passion for the wine industry. Brother Aldo learned the agricultural side of business firsthand – spending all of his life in the vineyard with his father.
With history reaching into the Middle ages, today the tiny paradise of hills and vineyards is well-known for its sandy terroir that is rich in sea fossil residue. Guyot-trained vines thrive on sunny slopes and alternate with abundant fruit and hazelnut orchards.
