The Lequio Family owns the Prinsi Winery, located in Neive – Piedmont, locally known as Langa (in the Barbaresco growing area). The family has been running the business for three generations; Daniele’s grandfather Ottavio started bottling his own grapes at the end of the 1940s. Franco, Ottavio’s son (Daniele’s father), always harbored a special connection with the land, and in 1967 – having just turned 16 – he entered the family business and decided to dedicate himself completely to wine making. After many years of working with the valuable help of his wife Silvana, they together redefined the course the winery would take: putting plenty of time and attention into the actual growing of the grapes – which they consider the one and only starting point to make great wines and continuing their education, earning a deep knowledge of soils and grapes. In 1999, Franco and Silvana’s son, Daniele also started working at the winery – having just finished his studies as a qualified agronomist. Daniele is a young farmer that is passionate about his work and the Langhe area he grew up in; fully convinced of the great result that his grapes can display. His utmost goal is to create wines to remember. Today, as in the past, this enthusiastically dedicated family seeks to preserve the strong link with their territory and transfer this uniqueness to their wines. They’ve succeeded in establishing their wines well in the international market, creating a well-developed trading network with several European and overseas countries.
