Podere Ruggieri Corsini - The Podere Ruggeri Corsini Winery was founded in 1995 thanks to a passion for the countryside and great wines.

Loredana Addari and Nicola Argamante, who both graduated in Agriculture and specialized in winegrowing and enology, decided to change their lives. They left their city jobs to buy a small farm business (which at the time only produced and sold its grapes) in Monforte d’Alba, in the heart of the Langhe, Cuneo.

It’s a family run business, owned by the two agronomists and Loredana’s brother, Lorenzo. The winery was given the name “Corsini” as it represents the ancient hamlet in Monforte d’Alba, made up of very old stone houses. Ruggeri stems from the maternal side of Nicola’s family. His mother strongly believed in Loredana and him, supported them financially, and helped them to make their dream come true.

Initially, only classic Langa wines such as Dolcetto d’Alba, Barbera d’Alba and Barolo were produced. Later, a series of other wines were added including Red and White Lange wines.

In 1996 the first 6000 bottles of Podere Ruggeri Corsini wines were produced and were mainly sold abroad. Starting in 1997, Corsini exported to the USA. The winery has since broadened its horizons to several other countries. Currently it is possible to buy Podere Ruggeri Corsini wines in the USA (main market), in Germany, Switzerland, Australia, Norway, Belgium, Denmark, Holland, Japan and obviously, Italy.

Oregonians love Italian wine. They have access to one of the best selections of small, artisan made Italian wines in the country, at killer prices. Some highly regarded small Italian wineries, whose production might be too small for the big importers, are directly imported by committed, dynamic individuals of the Oregon wine industry. They seek out the gems in the rural countryside of Italy, finding many stellar wines missed by the big boys. Just like Avalon finds the best of the Oregon and Washington "Indie" wines and delivers them to you!

While we specialize in Northwest wines online, we have a deep enthusiasm for Italian wines in our Corvallis store and our home cellars.

Barolo and Barbaresco, the king and queen of wines from Italy's Piedmont, have a similar allure to that of Oregon Pinot noir. They have complexity and intrigue - certain qualities that are simply hard to put into words. Perfect partners for food.
