Aurora wines are produced by Carlo Volpi's enologist, Giuliano Noe, at Cantina Aurora in Tortona. The Volpi winery was founded by Christiana Cairo Volpi at the turn of the century. In 1914 her two sons continued her initiative. The Volpi family had been in the restaurant business, having owned both the Trattoria de Cappel Verde and the Bar Venezia. Their passion for wine and food continues to this day, with Carlo Volpi running the winery. Founded in Tortona, in the province of Alexandria back in 1914, Cantine Aurora, today, is a reality in the foreground of the national wine scene. With successive generations the company has managed to build, step by step, a determining role and image of high quality of its wines, both on the Italian and foreign markets. Cortese, Barbera and Dolcetto are born as a result of careful and appropriate winemaking in the cellar of Viguzzolo, a center for collection and processing of grapes for nearly fifty years.
