The terroir


This ancient Roman settlement, which became a medieval parish and then a noble property, was the door of the Piedmontese marquisates towards the Genovesato (Clavesana=Claves Januae). After being divided in the days when sharecropping was popular, it is now being reunited. Garino originates from the ancient Alemannic word "Warin", which is still found in modern English as "Warning" and was used to indicate a strategic place of attention and protection. Garino is also the name of the river that surrounds the property below the steep gullies that support the cultivated land.
