The Gaudio family has been making Monferrato wine for three centuries. Estate-bottling began in 1973 under Amilcare Gaudio. Amilcare also renovated the estate and built a state-of-the-art winery. Today, his son, Mauro runs the winery. Mauro is actively flanked by his wife, Gabriella, and his daughter, Beatrice. Bricco Mondalino takes its name from the highest point of the Mondalino hill, bricco or bric meaning hilltop in the local dialect. Today the vineyards cover 44.5 acres, all in elevated, sunny positions on white calcareous terrain, rich in fossilized seashells and marine deposits. The vineyards enjoy a favorable microclimate and good rainfall (approximately 16 inches per year). Bricco Mondalino focuses on producing native varieties and has an average production of 100,000 bottles per year. Recently, the winery has undergone major innovations, starting with vineyard management. Mauro Gaudio explains that “Global warming has brought about a constant increase in alcohol and we want to make sure there’s quality and concentration without alcoholic excess. In other words, we want to contain alcohol levels for maximum elegance.” Simultaneously, the Gaudios have heavily invested in winery equipment, such as new stainless steel vats, a new refrigeration system, new harvest containers, and a brand new tasting room with seating for 60, overlooking the barrique cellar. In addition, Beatrice who graduated with a degree in Viticulture and Enology from Alba University in December 2011 is now firmly established as the co-winemaker.
