Villa Guelpa, situated in the historic heart of Upper Piedmont in the village of Lessona, is a testament to the dedication of the husband-and-wife duo, Daniele and Sonia. As the most exciting winery in Sizzano, Villa Guelpa produces some of the most easy-drinking, fruity, and delicious red wines in Piemonte. The province of Biella lies at the foot of the breathtaking Alps, near Monte Rosa and the Aosta Valley. We make wine in a small but historic cellar in the beating heart of the new ‘Alto Piedmonte’ Renaissance located in Lessona. We use old concrete tanks for young wines and Slavonian oak barrels for aging wines made only from our vineyards. This wine possesses in a high degree, what the quality of the wines of France and the bouquet is generally lacking in our own. Our goal is to obtain The bouquet of Sizzano does not resemble that of Bordeaux, but rather the bouquet of Burgundy, which for certain delicious qualities such as Clos-Vougeot and Romanet, enjoys the first fruits on all the wines of France, so it is now proven that the Novarese hills can compete with the Burgundy hills, and that to win the fight you only need owners who he diligent the manufacture of wine and rich and elegant gluttons who establish their reputation ". In 1870, after the capture of Rome, it was with a Lessona that he toasted the Unification of Italy celebrating the glories of Nebbiolo over other Piedmontese and northern Italian grape varieties.
