The name Villa Giada, acronym of the initials of the names of my parents, was first used by my grandfather, Giuseppe Faccio, at the beginning of the 70’s.
The Azienda Agricola Villa Giada comes from over two centuries of commitment in vineyard management. The historic core of the winery, where now our best wines age in barrels, was built in 1790.
In 1940 the new part of the cellar was built to produce Moscato d’Asti, whose production required considerable technological work.
In the same period, the traditional and important aging red wines in Piedmont reach affirmation: Nebbiolo, with Barolo and Barbaresco as well as Barbera.
The most suitable areas for the production of Barbera were identified, and the village of Agliano Terme, where we have our vineyards, was recognized as the best terroir.
The best crus come right from this area, which makes Barbera an important wine on the Italian wine scene.
