The small winery, 9 hectares on vineyards, was founded in 2000 with heart, passion, as well as commitment and dedication. On the hills of Bricco di Nizza Monferrato and in Chiesavecchia, Calamandrana, they have recovered the existing vineyards and planted new ones, favouring indigenous grape varieties like Barbera and Moscato d’Asti. They take pride in their work, knowing that by cultivating their vineyards well, they will achieve even greater satisfaction.
They have always believed in sustainable viticulture and respect for the environment they live in. As early as 2004, they obtained environmental certification. No chemical weed control, no synthetic products, reduced consumption of environmental resources, and manual management of all processing stages (from pruning to harvest), with minimal interventions in the vineyards and cellar. They also use lightweight bottles and eco-friendly sugarcane-based corks for their wines intended for early consumption.
Their goal is to achieve the maximum expression from their wines.
