Red Organic Vermouth
Red vermouth is one of the most exciting and typical Italian classy wines. The old spelling of the name was Wearmouth or Wermuth. The origin of the name is uncertain; perhaps, it comes from the German word Wermuth "wormwood" (Artemisia absinthium). It became famous in Piedmont, thanks to Antonio Benedetto Carpano, who first manufactured it in 1786 and sold it in his shop in the centre of Turin.
Another famous shop was owned by the Rovero family, who could boast among its clients King Carlo Alberto. By the end of the 19th century, vermouth was regularly exported to South America, the United States, and Europe.

Piedmont is in Italy's northwest and borders Switzerland and France. True to the meaning of its name (foot of the mountain), Piedmont is a land of mountains. It is surrounded on three sides by the Alps, with the highest peaks and largest glaciers in Italy. The most typical specialties of the regional cuisine are fondue and bagna cauda: two warm and out-of-this-world dips that celebrate the Alba white truffle and raw vegetables. Some of the many excellent dishes include the great mixed fry, braised beef in Barolo wine, civet of hare and a wide array of cheeses: toma, robiola, bruss from the Langhe, gorgonzola from Novara, and sernium from Biella.
The history of Fratelli Rovero starts at the end of the nineteenth century. The last two generations continued the family tradition expanding the company and using farming techniques that guarantee safe and natural products. Organic farming has been extended to the whole production over the years, representing now the company’s strong point as an example for many farmers.
