Oltrepò Pavese Wine Region - Lombardy - North West of Italy
Our names are Elisa and Silvia Piaggi, but you can call us ‘Lefiole’, which is an affectionate way of saying ‘girls’ in our local dialect. This connection inspired us to do something to pay homage to our home land, the Oltrepò Pavese, Lombardy, to its traditions and rich history, to these hills and their timeless beauty.
The 45th parallel is the perfect latitude along which many of the world’s greatest wines are made. Somewhere along the 45th parallel there is a triangular area of around 1000 square km. Running alongside the River Po and wedged between the 3 regions of Piedmont, Liguria and Emilia Romagna, there you have the Oltrepò Pavese.
Our Pinot Grigio is called Elivià, which is a fusion of our two names. While we named our Pinot Nero Alené, dedicated to our parents, Angela and Enzo.
To us, wine means identity and sharing and we hope that Elivià and Alené can be a part of your happiest moments, embodying our family’s passion and the uniqueness of our land, the Oltrepò Pavese.
