The Scrimaglio family has been present in Piedmont since the 17th century, known by the name of Escrimeaux from the French escrimeur, meaning swordsman. Their ancestors fled to the Monferrato area from France, following the violent persecution of the Huguenots, particularly the tragic purging that took place on St. Bartholomew's night in 1572. The importance of the Escrimeaux family within its new Piedmontese home is proven by the fact that they gave their name to the place where they settled, which became Regione Scrimaglio. Once on the border between the County of Castelvero and the Marquisate of Nizza, it is now between Nizza Monferrato and Castel Boglione. It was in the hills of Nizza Monferrato that Pietro Scrimaglio established the cellar in 1920, expanding and improving the activities of his father Francesco, a winegrower since the early 1900s. After the war, grandsons Franco and Mario, and later the founder's great-grandsons Pier Giorgio and Francesco, consolidated the winery's link with its terroir.
