The history of the Coppo family and winery is closely intertwined with the history of the town of Canelli, which even then was the capital of Moscato.
The Coppo Winery in Canelli/Piedmont
The company was born under the sign of Moscato, when the founder Piero Coppo began to produce sweet sparkling wines at the beginning of the 20th century. The move from sweet sparkling wines to dry sparkling wines made from Pinot grapes was inevitable, as was the move to tackle the great red wines of Monferrato and Langa.
Firm family cohesion at Coppo
Piero was succeeded by his son Luigi, who expanded the Coppo company and equipped it with structures and equipment that enabled it to face the markets in the difficult post-war period, and who left to his own sons, Piero, Gianni, Paolo and Roberto, in addition to the vineyards, the philosophy of life and business that underlies the production of today's wines. The enthusiasm of the four young men led them to take the direction that would prove successful in the eighties.
The Coppo winery developed, among other crus, the Pomorosso: the Barbera in barrique, symbol of Piedmontese pride. Once maligned, today it is finally gaining recognition. The courage of the youth, with their feet firmly planted in tradition, led them to look also at those grape varieties that were about to shape the tastes of an international market, and so Chardonnay and Cabernet came to Canelli as a challenge. A new cellar, heavy investments, restorations and environmental protection measures characterize the work carried out in recent years.
One of the oldest family-owned wineries in Italy
Today, the Coppo winery is one of the oldest family-owned wineries in all of Italy and was even added to the State Register of Historic Companies in 2012. The Coppo family vineyard extends over 52 hectares, with the heart of the vineyard located in Monferrato, in the southern Piedmont.
