Our territory

OMBF is located in Canelli, a town famous worldwide for the production of spumante. 

In fact it is in Canelli that around 1850 the first Italian “champagne” was produced with the vinification of the autochthonous variety of Moscato that gave origin to the first sweet sparkling wine, Asti.

Nowadays Canelli hosts a lot of historical wineries producing from Moscato, Barbera, Dolcetto, Cortese and Chardonnay, wines well-known all over the world and obtained from the typical varieties of the region: Asti (o Asti Spumante), Moscato d'Asti, Barbera d'Asti, Dolcetto d’Asti, Cortese dell'Alto Monferrato, Freisa d'Asti.

Canelli with its wonderful hills, underground cellars, and wines, first of all Asti Spumante, belongs to a unique "cultural landscape", since it is a result of the combined work of nature and man, that on 22nd June 2014 was inscribed in the UNESCO World Heritage “vineyard landscapes of Piedmont: “Langhe-Roero and Monferrato”.

Besides shaping the landscape, such an important presence of wine estates, led to an industrial evolution of the region started about 30 years ago. Nowadays a number of companies producing machines for the enological sector form an important industrial district specialized in equipments for the beverage branch so giving a remarkable contribution to local economy.

It is in these hills that OMBF gives life to new ideas!
