the queen of timorasso

Elisa Semino, winemaker

La Colombera, the “family team” guardian of the territory

Elisa Semino owns and runs La Colombera together with her father and brother. Their engagement and dedication to the territory and vineyards, the production chain with due regard to the territory and an accurate work in the wine cellar have led La Colombera to be one of the most preferred wineries offering the Timorasso wine, the Colli Tortonesi’s legend.

A real native story


Pietro and Maria, Elisa’s grandparents, rent a farm on the hills in Vho. On their land they grow wheat, chickpeas and alfalfa.


The farm lives on its own economy : chickens, turkeys, a calf, a cow, wheat flower, eggs, milk and some rows of vineyard, only for family’s consumption. Their son Piercarlo is born.


The vineyard is enlarged and Piercarlo decides not to deliver the grapes but to make and bottle the wine himself.


The first Label of La Colombera is produced.
