WHO WE AREThe wine is the result of passion, hard work and dedication.
After having achieved my bachelor’s degree in viticulture and wine-making at the Faculty of Agricultural Science in Turin, I moved to the Langhe in 2001, gaining experience by working for free in various local cellars.
I then worked for various wineries and cellars around Alba, where I began to learn about the area’s important wines: Barbera, Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Moscato d’Asti.
In 2010, having returned to the Langhe after working abroad, I was able to make my life-long dream come true:
My partner Erika and I, along with our son Filippo, were looking for a house to buy when we saw an advert for a 19th century farmhouse, including vineyards, going for sale in the commune of Neviglie.
We grabbed the opportunity, and with the help of our families, began to establish the winery.
For the first two years (2011-2012), I carried on working as a wine-grower, whilst in 2013, when the cellar was completed, I started producing Moscato d’Asti docg, Moscato passito (raisin wine), Dolcetto d’Alba, and spumante achieved with the classical method.
They are mainly made up of Moscato d’Asti (muscat)vines (5 hectares), mostly standing on a sole hillside facing south-south west, towards Treiso and the Monviso, at an altitude of 450 metres a.s.l. The only exception is the vineyard known as “bricco est” which, as suggested by its name, faces east towards the village of Mango, at an altitude of 550 metres a.s.l.
On the same hillside, just below the cellar, there is our youngest vineyard; a hectare of pinot noir which was planted in 2012. Going back to the slope facing south, there is the small dolcetto vineyard that covers a surface of 0.5 hectares. The land is steep, with clayey and in places sandy soil, which enables us to obtain an excellent quality of the grapes and therefore of the resulting wines.
Characterized by rather mild winters, despite the altitude, and cool summers, the vineyards benefit from a cool and dry climate which is particularly suitable for muscat grapes and spumante made with the classical method.
