Estate-bottling began in 1973 under Amilcare Gaudio.
Amilcare also renovated the estate and built a state-of-theart winery. Today, his son Mauro runs the winery. Mauro
works side-by-side with his wife, Gabriella, and his daughter, Beatrice.
Bricco Mondalino takes its name from the highest point in the Mondalino hill, bricco or bric meaning hilltop in the
local dialect. Today the vineyards cover 44.5 acres, all in elevated, sunny positions on white calcareous terrain, rich in
fossilized seashells and marine deposits. The vineyards enjoy a favorable microclimate and good rainfall (approximately
16 inches per year). Bricco Mondalino focuses on producing native varieties and has an average production of 100,000
bottles per year.
