It is the first white Piedmontese wine.
Typical wine from the area around Caluso in the North of Turin Province. Vine growing in this area has ancient origins and Erbaluce is one of the oldest vines from Piedmont. It seems that it was known since Romans times with the name of “Alba lux”. First sure news date back up to 1606, when Giovan Battista Croce, jeweller of His Highness the Duke Carlo Emanuele I, in one of his works describe its inimitable features.
Only the vines which grow on soils with good exposition and with morainal origin, are considered capable to produce this wine. It is the first white Piedmontese wine, which in 1967 received the Denomination of Controlled Origin appellation.
