Azienda Agricola Taliano Michele is in Montà in the Roero region of Piemonte. It owns vineyards both in Roero and in Barbaresco at San Rocco Seno D'Elvio in Alba. The estate was created by Domenico Taliano in 1930, but his family's roots run deeper still.

Domenico came from a family of farmers who were so dedicated to their vineyards and fields that in Montà they were given the nickname of "Re Cit" - "Little Kings" in the local dialect. At that time, all of the family's vineyards were close to Montà, in Bossola, Rolandi and Benna. In the mid-seventies, the estate expanded towards Langhe thanks to the actions of Domenico's son, Michele. He bought vineyards and a farmhouse in Montersino, close to the hamlet of San Rocco Seno d'Elvio, between the towns of Treiso and Barbaresco.

Twenty years later, in the mid-nineties, two of Michele's four sons, (Alberto at first and, after gaining experience on other estates, Ezio) began to renovate the farm. They set about improving their viticultural practices to produce better grapes and refining the winemaking methodologies they employed to make better wines. Today, Ezio is the oenologist and the Taliano Michele estate owns 12 hectares of prime vineyards in the region.
