Our Trinita vineyard contains Nebbiolo, Arneis, Favorita, Chardonnay and a small part of Barbera. The Nebbiolo vines are planted on top of the hill while the Arneis is planted more towards the bottom. Our winery is located at the base of this 14 hectare vineyard, with Villa Tiboldi located in the heart of the vineyard. The Villa was inaugurated in 2004. The soil of this vineyard is made of layers of calcareous clay and sand. The exposition of the vineyard is south and south-west and entered the Damonte family in 1986. We make our Roero Arneis Trinita and our Roereo Riserva Trinita from this vineyard. The vineyard is named for the small church which sits on top of the hill in the middle of the Trinita vineyard.

Our winery began its production in the 1950’s under the guidance of Giuseppe Damonte. Giuseppe was a visionary, understanding that in the 50’s, the Roero had not yet maximized its vineyard and thus grape-growing potential. Today the estate is run by Massimo and Roberto Damonte, Guiseppe’s sons, who inherited their father’s passion for winemaking.
Despite constant growth in production and exposure to new markets, the winery still is a family business. Malvira benefits directly from the involvement of Federica and Patrizia Damonte, the wives of Massimo and Roberto-Patrizia runs a 13 room luxury hotel and restaurant on the property.
Currently, the two brothers split the responsibilities, Massimo managing the vineyards and Roberto in the cellar. Giacomo, Roberto and Patrizia’s son, is also part of the family business. To date, he attends the enology school in Alba, with plans to continue the family business into the new generation.
Massimo’s children are Lucia, Francesco and Pietro, and are currently attending elementary school. The family and staff members at Malvira are a passionate group, living off the collaborations and enthusiasm from each other. Above all, each member of the Malvira ”family” has a primary idea to make wines that transcend the Roero area in its purest and most elegant form.
