Considered part of a small but energised band of 'next generation' producers in Barbaresco, Paolo Veglio is making some of the more interesting and individual wines that are emerging from the region at the moment.

He acts as custodian to 20 precious hectares just above the township of Alba, around 4 hectares sporting vines. The farm is rife with wildlife, Paolo taking a holistic approach to farming and looking to biodiversity to create life and energy in his soils and wines.

He takes a back to basics approach when building his unique wines. Looking to the traditions of old for inspiration, bringing light, ethereal expressions of Nebbiolo to bottle that are utterly compelling to drink.

This is charming Barbaresco. A lithe, elegant wine of purity and charisma. A wine that harkens back to the Barbarescos of old.

The beautiful wine adventure of Cascina Roccalini begins in 2004, when Paolo Veglio, a young and experienced winemaker, begins to make wine on his own with the help of Dante Scaglione (winemaker for decades a Bruno Giacosa). Today Paolo produces just over 10,000 bottles a year: a small and artisanal production faithful to a personal and very traditional style.

Since 1993 the grapes were given to the famous producer Bruno Giacosa, who considered the grapes of the Roccalini cru among the best in the whole Barbaresco area. This is a single Cru in Barbaresco which give to the winery the name. The Roccalini wines faithfully reflect the territory from which they come and are characterized by a genuine and traditional method: they stand out in the panorama of the Langhe wines. Tones of strawberries and violets brightened by fresh white pepper and chamomille. Great structure, rich tannin, and savory notes. One world Elegant.

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.


If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
