Cordero San Giorgio

Cordero San Giorgio is a new beginning for three siblings who grew up surrounded by their family's vines at the legendary Vietti Estate in Castiglione Falleto in Barolo.​ The siblings Francesco, Lorenzo, and Caterina Cordero, are grandchildren of Luciana Vietti & Alfredo Currado, one of the pioneers of the first Barolo crus and considered the "father of Arneis." Their father is Mario Cordero, Alfredo and Luciana's son-in-law, who was the company's co-owner from the beginning of the '80s until 2016 when it was sold. 

Named for the legend of St. George and the dragon, many of San Giorgio's wines reference mythical dragons and the concept of curiosity, challenging the unknown and triumphing in discovery and knowledge, all experiences that parallel the journey of the Cordero siblings.​

The estate has 22 hectares of land in total. 20 hectares of vineyards are planted between 200m - 250m to Pinot Nero, Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Croatina, and Barbera. All work in the vineyard is carried out according to organic principles since July 2019 with the official organic conversion beginning in July 2021.​
