Paitin

Paitin is one of the oldest wineries in Barbaresco, they consider 1796 their founding but their roots in the area date back even further

Paitin has been a classic, traditional producer of Barbaresco for over their 200+ year history aside form a short flirtation with shorter macerations for a few vintages in the 1990's. The current vintages are superb examples of focused, elegant, traditional Barbaresco. 

The Paitin winery, owned by the Pasquero-Elia family, was established in 1796 when Benedetto Elia purchased the farmhouse, wine cellar and surrounding vineyards from Luigi Pelissero. Benedetto’s son Giuseppe acquired the underground cellar and extended their vineyard holdings to the current 17 hectares. In 1893, the first Barbaresco Sori Paitin was produced and in 1898 the winery began exporting the wine commercially. 

In the vineyards, they farms organically (fully certified as of 2019). Silvano Pasquero-Elia, who mainly oversees vineyard work, has also been incorporating some biodynamic techniques. In the cellar, the winemaking is very traditional and includes long macerations (3 to 8 weeks for the Barbareschi) and aging the wines in large, neutral botti.
