The Socré winery, with a Piedmontese name meaning "clog maker", began its history in 1869 when the great-grandfather of the current owners purchased land in Barbaresco. At the beginning, most of the grapes were sold to farmers, while only a small percentage was used for winemaking and family consumption. In 1958, the father and grandfather of the current owners renovated the vineyard, increasing the number of Nebbiolo vines. Starting in 1990, his son Marco and nephews Giulio and Lorenzo expanded the company with new vineyards in the Langhe, Alba and in the Asti area in Cisterna d'Asti. Today, the winery has approximately three hectares of Nebbiolo vineyards in the upper part of the Roncaglie crù and has recently created a distinctive Alta Langa thanks to Pinot Noir. Each bottle is part of a limited and unique production capable of surprising the palates even more demanding.
