Paolo Veglio founded Cascina Roccalini in 2003 after having farmed Nebbiolo for nearly a decade and selling the fruit to some of the most well known wineries in Piemonte. His greatgrandfather bought the property in 1920 for the equivalent of 250 Euros. The winery doesn't carry any certifications, but Paolo follows organic and biodynamic practices. Paolo knew from a young age that he wanted to grow grapes and make wine. He began apprenticing with farmers and winemakers at the age of 14. It was then that he discovered "I didn't want to sit behind a desk, I wanted to work the fields.

The Roccalini vineyard has plantings going back as far as 1961. It sits at a southwestern exposure on a hill overlooking the Tanaro River at 1,000 ft elevation. The soil is a combination of clay and marl. Paolo believes the freshness of his wines comes from the clay soils. The grapes for the Barbaresco come from the most mature plantings. Paolo is the only one farming grapes at this site and he no longer sells any of his fruit.
