The best of Piedmont
The origins of the winery date back to 1892. For over 120 years, the family has remained the sole owner. Since the very beginning, the Coppo family has managed estate vineyards and bottled their own wine under the name of Coppo, making it one of the oldest family-run wineries in all of Italy.
In fact, in 2012, Unioncamere added the winery to the national register of historical businesses, highlighting its uninterrupted activity for over a century in the commodity market.
The Coppo estate extends over 52 hectares (129 acres) of vineyards that are owned by the winery or rented and managed by Coppo. The productive heart of the vineyards is located in southern Piedmont in Monferrato. Coppo cultivates the ancient and prized Moscato Bianco and the Pinot Nero, from which they make their sparkling Metodo Classico Riserva Coppo. Their most prestigious Barbera grapes come from Agliano Terme and Castelnuovo Calcea in the heart of the subzone called Nizza, from which they make the Pomorosso and the Riserva di Famiglia.
The history of Coppo winery is linked to the wine history of Piedmont, and is geographically tied to the development of the city of Canelli, known as the capital of Italian sparkling wine and one of Italy’s most important viticultural centres today.
