WHO WE AREThe wine is the result of passion, hard work and dedication.
My viticultural story began about 15 years ago in Turin.
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 through internships 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:
We 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, Dolcetto d’Alba DOC, and Alta Langa DOCG.
Our vineyards are situated in the commune of Neviglie, covering a surface of 6.5 hectares, characterized by an average old age of 25 years.
Composed by 2 hectares of Alta Langa, 4 hectares of Moscato and 0.5 of Dolcetto, the vineyards are mostly standing on a sole hillside facing south, towards Treiso and the Monviso, at an altitude of 450 metres a.s.l. The only exception is the Alta Langa which also faces east at an altitude of 550 metres a.s.l. This is the youngest of our vineyard: 1 hectare of Pinot Nero, planted in 2012.
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 Moscato grapes and spumante made with the classical method.
