A high-quality Nebbiolo from Colline Novaresi

Azienda Vitivinicola Enrico Crola is a young and dynamic family-owned winery in Alto Piemonte, Italy.

It offers niche and high-quality products and pays great attention to design and communication.  Its owner Enrico Crola has built up the winery with passion and enthusiasm and has also developed ​​experiential tourism linked to wine.

Company profile

Azienda Vitivinicola Enrico Crola produces a variety of wines:

  • Giulia Nebbiolo Colline Novaresi
  • Vespolina Colline Novaresi
  • Uva Rara Colline Novaresi
  • Hallè Rosè Sparkling Wine Metodo Classico 100% Nebbiolo (it was the first in its area to produce this type of wine)
  • Grappa 100% Nebbiolo.

Its winery is surrounded by vineyards.

The underground section is dedicated to processing and aging the wine. Above ground, the special Enolounge is a charming and eco-friendly structure, built of wood and glass and with solar panels.

Azienda Vitivinicola Enrico Crola exports to Japan and Norway. Its clients there appreciate the quality of its products and the wine-making traditions of the local area.

How the EU’s trade agreement could help

Azienda Vitivinicola Enrico Crola has been exporting to Japan since 2015. Japan is a strategic export market for it.

The main challenges have been costs, high tariffs and cultural differences regarding wine.

The EU-Japan trade agreement will remove Japan’s 15% duty on EU wines as soon as it enters into force, making Italian wine cheaper for Japanese consumers.

Azienda Vitivinicola Enrico Crola also expects the EU’s trade deal with Japan to strengthen its brand presence on the Japanese market and increase sales.

We're looking forward to the new agreement coming into force because overnight it will remove Japanese tariffs on our products.
