Winery iPola (by Alessandro Rivetto)

The History of the Company “iPola” digs its roots in the tradition and the culture of one of the most suitable areas for viticulture in the territory of Ovada: Cremolino.

Here in the little town of Cremolino, between the Ligurian Sea to the South and the fertile plain of Alessandria to the North, the Merlo family started the recovery of the ancient family business.
New vineyards and a modern winery were the basis of the new iPola Estate that focused its work on improving the quality of the grapes, redifining the identity of this territory.
In 2010, Angelo Merlo partnered with Alessandro Bonelli and Carlo Ricagni. Their different experiences in viticulture, wine making and property management in the Ovada Area (Alessandria county - South East of Alba), gave a strong impulse for the development of the company. 
Lastly, in 2012, Alessandro Rivetto joined the team bringing the history and the experiences and the vineyards of the Langhe Area (Barolo, Barbaresco).
So today, to the historical company of Cremolino, where the vineyards of Dolcetto, Barbera, Riesling and Pinot Nero are cultivated, were added the vineyards of Serralunga d’Alba, with the Nebbiolo, the Dolcetto and Barbera, and also the vineyards in Acqui Terme with Moscato and more Barbera.
