the history

Led from the beginning by the brothers Pico and Vitaliano Maccario, the winery is a symbol of modernity both in the vineyards management and the production of wines: the goal is that of reaching the highest possible quality, that, thanks to a precious teamwork, begins in the vineyard, continues to the cellar, and arrives to every corner in the world.

The wines are aged in stainless steel, large barrels, tonneaux or barriques, always in pursuit of the highest quality and respect for the original traits of the grapes. For this reason, Pico Maccario Winery dedicates itself to technological innovation and research in the vineyard, as innovative technology, if well-calibrated, is the main road for obtaining the highest productive quality.

the vineyard


In Monferrato Pico Maccario owns the majority of the hundred hectares among Barbera, Viognier, Cortese, Sauvignon Blanc, and Moscato d’Asti varietals. Thanks to clayey and medium-texture soil, Pico Maccario wines are balanced and feature a modern, versatile style, but respecting the natural characteristics of the grapes and vines. All around the single vineyard estate, over five thousand rose plants and one thousand colored pencil poles bring joy and identify the history and the mood of Pico Maccario with total respect to the traditions.



In the Langhe area Pico Maccario runs Nebbiolo vineyards in the comune of Neive, Serralunga d’Alba and Barolo, this last one with the prestigious Cannubi single vineyard, well-known and recognized as the oldest of Italy (1752) as well one of the most important in the world. The terroirs of the Langhe area, where Barolo and Barbaresco are produced, are very old: they date back to the geolocical epoch of Miocene. Featured by compact soils and fine texture, they adds elegance and a unique evolution over time to the wines.

le Matite ®

Over 900 pencils poles in 22 different colors demark our vineyards, bringing joy and color to outstanding territory recognized by UNESCO since 214.

Our colored wooden cases became a “must” over the years and represent an elegant alternative to the classic “neutral” wodden ones; the random combinations of different colors allow a new original and unique creation possibile everytime.

It all started with the original concept of the pencil poles…the second step was the creation of an exclusive container with strong design impact that reminds the pencils, a unique and special gift offer and at the same time a design object that can be easily enjoyed for other purposes.
