The Piedmontese wine reality Sorelle de Nicola - Feyles is committed to enhancing the authentic Langhe tradition, both in the vineyard and in the cellar. The founders of the estate were Maria Feyles and her son-in-law Antonio de Nicola, who in 1964 acquired a vineyard plot in the municipality of Neive, in the prestigious Barbaresco area. Over the decades that followed, the vineyard estate was expanded with the purchase of various parcels scattered throughout the Langhe region, particularly in the Barolo area. Today, the estate owns vineyards in the municipalities of Neive, where the Montesommo and Borgese plots are located, and Monforte d'Alba, with the Serra and Manzoni vineyards.

The vineyard hectares managed by the Sorelle de Nicola - Feyles cellar are over 7, mainly dedicated to Nebbiolo, accompanied by the other traditional varieties Dolcetto and Barbera. The use of herbicides in the vineyards is banned, and furthermore, to optimize the sun exposure of the plants, the rows are tall and well spaced apart. Harvesting is done exclusively by hand when the grapes have reached full ripeness, while in the cellar, fermentations, entrusted to indigenous yeasts only, take place in stainless steel tanks, accompanied by long macerations on the skins during which periodic pump-overs are carried out. For aging, only Slavonian oak barrels of 30 or 50 hectoliters are used, without the use of small barrels that would alter the pure expression of the terroir. Moreover, oenological operations are limited to the bare minimum, so as not to interfere with the natural evolution of the wines. In this perspective, any clarification or filtration process is excluded.

The expressions of the Sorelle de Nicola - Feyles cellar faithfully embody the classic style of Langhe wines, from the austere elegance of Barolo to the femininity of Barbaresco, passing through the intense fruitiness of Dolcetto d'Alba and the full and juicy character of Barbera d'Alba. It is a small production of about 50,000 bottles per year, capable of reflecting the identity of the territory.
