The structures are improved, new clients are acquired, new markets open up and business is carried out abroad with great attention to market needs. In 1977 an up-to-date plant, the actual premises of the Company, was opened on an area of more than 18.000 square metres situated next to the birthplace of the writer Cesare Pavese. The factory does not process only the grapes grown at the 5 Santero's wine farms, but also the grapes bought from over three hundred local winegrowers. The production capacity of the winery is in excess of 18 million bottles per annum which is above all due to the strong presence of the main export markets.
