Barolo as we know it today was first made in the early 19TH century by Juliette Colbert and her husband, the Marchese Carlo Tancredi Falletti di Barolo. The wine from their estate soon became known as “the wine from Barolo”, served at important diplomatic and royal functions. Barolo, the wine of the kings and the king of wines. The Marchesi had no children and following the death of the couple, the Marchesi di Barolo dynasty was left without an heir. Per the wishes of Marchesa Giulia, a great philanthropist, the family assets were donated to charity and a non-profit foundation was created in their name, “Opera Pia Barolo”, helping the most needy of nearby Torino. Wine from their Barolo vineyards continue to be made and its sale funds the charity, which still exists today. In 1929, local winemaker, Pietro Abbona purchased the cellars formerly owned by the Marchesi and eventually acquired all their vineyard holdings as well. Today, Marchesi di Barolo remains a family business, entirely managed by the 6th generation of the Abbona family.
