Everyone in La Morra calls us Ballarin, despite the fact that our family’s real surname is Viberti. One of our ancestors used to work on a farm in Strada Ballerini, in Alba. When he returned to La Morra, everyone started calling him “the guy from Ballarin”, giving a Piedmontese twist to the name of the street. Where we live, once someone gives you a nickname, that’s it, and not even time can erase it, so our relative who worked in Strada Ballerini became Ballarin, and the name is very close to our hearts today.
THE STORY OF CASCINA BALLARIN IS A LOT LIKE THOSE OF MANY OTHER SMALL FARMS IN THE LANGHE. UNTIL FORTY YEARS AGO, PRODUCTION WAS MIXED: THERE WAS A STABLE, FRUIT TREES AND VINEYARDS.
Partly due to luck, partly because the world was changing, we chose to specialize in viticulture and winemaking. In the 1980s, vineyards began to take the place of the orchards, the storerooms were renovated and used as a wine cellar, and stable and barn gave way to a tasting room and the guesthouse.
