This is a tale about many hands which form a strong, reliable chain, which is consolidated by friendship, by love of the land, by hard work and by solidarity.
It's an open circle which has the flavour of a fairy tale set on a farm.
This is what Insieme is all about.
It is a small but steady scheme based on wine production to help others.
It is small because there are only eight wine producers from the Langhe hills who contribute to it; it is steady because each year on St Martin's Day, which marks the end of the farming year, that is, November 11th, the accounts are settled and part of the proceeds from a "charity" wine, which the eight producers have called Insieme is allotted to a needy cause.
Based on the principle of step after step these producers have donated a huge sum, around half a million Euro, in the course of seven grape harvests. The money has been split into 42 big and small projects but all equally significant.
Yes, you got it right! Eight wineries who alone without any administration or PR costs have managed to put Insieme this sort of money .
Among the members there, Elio Altare, Mauro Veglio, Federico Grasso, Giuliano Corino, Carlo and Lorenzo Revello , all from La Morra, then Gianfranco Alessandria from Monforte, Beppe Caviola from Dogliani and finally Paolo and Giulio Morando
