Cascina Adelaide began in 1817 as a group of vine growers. They owned vineyards in two of the most prestigious regions in Italy, Cannubi and Preda.
The estate was bought 15 years ago by Amabile Drocco. He immediately updated the estate by building a modern underground cellar, introducing a new barrel system and more than doubling the size of the vineyards.
Drocco’s father was a vine grower in a small village not far from Barolo. After World War II, because of a weak Italian economy, Drocco chose to study mechanics in Torino. When he returned to Alba, he started the Sancassiano Bakery Equipment Company. After leading his company to great success, he was finally able to return to his viticulture roots and purchase Cascina Adelaide.
