In this area, named Basso Monferrato, just one hour from Milan, Turin and Genoa, families scattered their small vineyard plots throughout the hills in search of the perfect location for the grapes, in particular for the Grignolino and for the Barbera.
Today, this knowledge is combined with the enological techniques developed by the new generation of Monferrato winemakers, but in an ever-evolving story, these proud people remain constant to the past quality and prestige of their limited, but excellent production. It is evident, even to the most unsophisticated palate, that a huge amount of work and passion goes into making and producing these special wines from Monferrato.
This tour starts from the vineyards, crossing the ancient cellar dated 1700 and the aging room that leads into the beautiful tasting room. This tour also includes a private old church and a unique cellar called 'infernot', a carved out underground cellar that dug by farmers, which has been a UNESCO heritage since 2014.
