Domenico Cabutto bought the farmstead of La Volta, that later would become Tenuta La Volta, straight from Marquis Gastone di Mirafiori.
The «Decreto sui vini tipici», a decree that officialy circumscribes the Barolo region, was published in the Gazzetta Ufficiale.
Domenico was joined by his son Bartolomeo.
Bartolomeo's sons, Osvaldo and Bruno, entered the company to help his father's work. With the evolution of a company come structural and role changes: Osvaldo took care of the wine making process while Bruno engaged in commercial promotion.
First participation at Vinitaly, the most important international exhibition of wines and spirits.

The Pollenzo Agency, of which we are founding members, was born. The capital raised from public and private investors made possible the purchase and restoration of the Pollenzo Agency.

Establishment of a weather station for a constant monitoring of atmospheric events in our vineyards, in order to optimize and therefore reduce the impact of the treatments in the vineyard.
Nowadays, the company sells the 95% of its production abroad. Some of our traditional target markets are Switzerland, USA, Canada, Germany, Austria and Norway - the most recent ones being Korea and Japan. It is therefore essential for us to keep a good relationship with our distributors, importers and agents, as well as with our customers in various countries around the world by taking part in events, presentations and trade fairs.
