The farm Costa di Bussia was founded in 1874 by the farsighted, Knight. Luigi Arnulfo who already had the intuition about the potential and noble destiny of his 11 hectares that make up the Estate today. They would give back great wines, especially with extremely fine Barolos. In 1890 Arnulfo shipped his wine (vintage 1883) successfully to San Francisco, a job that we have documented through letters from the Italian Swiss Agricultural Colony importer. This historical document is just one of the 200 letters found in the attic, which makes up the core of the Historical Museum of Luigi Arnulfo inside the farmhouse, and telling this winery’s incredible story!
