Since 1878 the Oddero family has been synonymous with tradition and high quality Nebbiolo wines from the Langhe 's top vineyards, and it was in 1951 when brothers Giacomo and Luigi Oddero began bottling their family's wines. Located in Santa Maria, a frazione of La Morra, in the heart of the Barolo zone, this distinguished family firm under the direction of Mariacristina and Mariavittoria Oddero has quietly become one of the most consistent and most highly regarded of all Barolo houses. The quality level is routinely excellent and has been steadily improving for the past decade.
The Luigi Oddero's Barolo is produced with Nebbiolo grapes coming from three vineyards located in La Morra, Castiglione Falletto and Serralunga d’Alba, all in the DOCG area in Piedmont. This Barolo with its unmistakable, intense, persistent and very pleasant aroma has an excellent tannic texture that completes the structure and makes it suitable for a long time aging.

1878年就開始的Oddero 家族其實早就擁有很多Langhe 名田，到一直到1951年才由Giacomo 與Luigi Oddero 兄弟倆開始獨立裝瓶，到了2006年Luigi Oddero 更開始成立他的個人品牌，陸續在這幾年裡引進了在Giacosa 酒莊長期釀酒的Dante Scaglione，還有Giaocsa 的關門弟子，Francesco Versio，一起合作釀酒，厚積薄發，逐漸變成了Langhe 新一代的夢幻團隊。
