In the 1960’s, Alberto di Grésy spent much of his time supervising the agricultural operations of the family estates where he concluded early on that he didn't want to limit himself to selling the grapes from his vineyards to the finest wine producers in the area, as was the tradition in the Langhe.
In 1973 Alberto di Grésy began vinifying his own wine: the objective to produce wine with the best available technology while respecting tradition, and to transfer as much as possible of the character and personality of the terrain, vineyard site and varietal into the bottle.
Famous in ancient Roman times when the estate was known as "Villa Martis", today Martinenga's 29.5 acres of Nebbiolo vineyards are considered to be one of the greatest single vineyards dedicated to the production of Barbaresco d.o.c.g. Ideal southern exposure and a particular composition of the soil (blue marl), produces fruit that is transformed into a Barbaresco of extraordinary class and finesse. The winery, recently expanded, provides the means to produce products of the highest quality, with respect to the oenological tradition.
