The Fornos have a long history in Santo Stefano Belbo, documented as early as the mid-1600's. They are a family of winegrowers and winemakers, devoted to the vine and to wine for four generations. Pietro Forno began producing Moscato in 1940. At the end of the 70s Pietro passes the reins to the children Natalino and Luigi, who renewed the cellar and introduce advanced equipment for the processing of grapes and fermentation, improving and honing techniques, always in the maximum respect for tradition and the land.
Today the Tenuta Il Falchetto Estate, proudly managed by brothers Giorgio, Fabrizio and Adriano Forno, includes three estates Cuneo province in the small towns of Santo Stefano Belbo and Castiglione tine and three in Asti Province in the small towns of Agliano Terme and Calosso, where there are cultivated nine different varieties of vineyards, some typical of the area and some international.
