Two brothers, Antonio and Raimondo Levis, started this winery in 1938 with passion and focus on the grapes of the Langhe region. They were focused on making top quality wines from the beginning and the practice of producing honest, classically styled wines continues today. In 2002, Raimondo passed away, and a portion of the business was sold to the Sartirano Family who has been making wines in the region since 1871. They now handle the winemaking aspects of the winery while holding true to the Fratelli’s original
Saint-Pourçain is a lesser-known wine region that is producing unique wines at an excellent value. Granted AOC status in 2009, it is often considered an upstream satellite of the Loire Valley. The red wines of this region are made from Pinot Noir and Gamay. Château Courtinat was created around a sixteenth-century convent based on the Sioule river. Christophe and his wife Nathalie represent the third generation of winemakers here, though it was Christophe’s father who started bottling their production in 1982.
