About today’s guest producer:
Silvia Altare grew up in a wine family made famous by her father Elio, who in the mid-1970s was one of the “Barolo Boys” who dared to make wine more like the French Burgundians. Elio and Lucia’s two children, Silvia and Elena, however, were never pressured to involve themselves with winemaking. In the early 1980s, that was a future reserved for boys.
Growing up, Silvia participated in the various aspects of winegrowing and winemaking with her family but often felt that she had to prove herself as a girl. Starting in 1994, when she was 15 years old, her parents sent her to live with a family in California for the summer. She attended the University of Economy in Turin and studied international business, graduating in 2003. Her travels and work harvests in California, Burgundy and Australia led her to join the family estate after her graduation.
