The Germano estate, founded in 1856 by Francis Germano, began as a wine-growing property. It quickly established itself as one of the premier wine-growing estates in all of Piemonte. Today the estate is run by Sergio Germano. Sergio's father, Ettore, was long recognized as a master grafter of the region. Producers all over the appellation paid him by the vine to replant their vineyards. So it comes as no surprise that Sergio has emerged as one of the best producers in Piemonte. After taking over in 1993, he merged his formidable technical winemaking knowledge with his family's great terroir, old vines and incredible tradition, creating an estate that has become among the very best in Piedmont.

The Langhe Chardonnay is usually harvested in mid-September and fermented in stainless steel. The wine is kept in contact with the lees for six months, with half undergoing a malolactic fermentation. Germano's Chardonnay has wonderful orchard fruit aromas, a creamy texture that remains fresh as a result of a harmonious acidity, and a robust finish. Pair with seared skate or cream based pasta dishes.
