Welcome to our winery Azienda Agricola Le Pianelle in Alto Piemonte. Dieter Heuskel and Peter Dipoli acquired a first plot of land in December 2004, an abandoned vineyard in Brusnengo, laying the foundation for what is today Azienda Agricola Le Pianelle. Over time, more than 50 plots of land have since followed that first acquisition. In 2008 our vineyards in Brusnengo and Roasio had finally been replanted and restored. In 2018/2019 two new vineyards were added in Forte and Lessona. At present there are a total of 5 hectares in production.

Nebbiolo is our grape of choice, whilst also tending to autochthonous grape varieties Croatina and Vespolina. Shortly before the first harvest in 2010, we were able to buy a farmhouse in the historic center of Brusnengo, directly opposite from our vineyard Robino. This is where our wines are made; Bramaterra, Al Forte Rosso, Al Posto dei Fiori Rosato and a few bottles of Vèspo and Croatina.

With Le Pianelle we would like to create exceptional wines, unique in character, true to the nature and traditions of winemaking in Alto Piemonte. We are and will remain an artisan winery hoping to inspire others with our enthusiasm for what we do.
