Salvano’s history dates back to the 1960s when, surrounded by the vineyards of Diano d’Alba, in the heart of the Langhe, Mr. Angelo Salvano began producing wines in his farmhouse (then called "Grillo"). The fame of his wines grew. He attributed his success to the fruit of hard work and the love of a fertile land. After WWII, the family tradition of wine making grew. Saverio Salvano increased his father’s vision and with an iron will, enlarged the winery and moved to Valle Talloria , where the name “Salvano” became synonymous with quality wine.
In 1982 Salvano grew again in yet another phase when Luciana Agnello and Piero Sobrero decided to realize their big dreams. They brought the company their ambitions and personal experiences to keep the traditions, tastes and smells of an ancient art of Langhe alive. During this phase, Salvano become a modernized company and successfully targeted a selected market with its high quality products. During the late 1980’s, the pair expanded sales to the US and German markets.
