Tradition and Innovation
The desire to take on new challenges, together with a passion for the world of wine, was the motivation that prompted Sabrina and I to move from Milan to the home of Nebbiolo, northern Piedmont, and more precisely to Gattinara.
In 1998, after buying land and renovating an old distillery in the historic centre of Gattinara, we started cultivating vineyards and producing Gattinara DOCG and Bramaterra DOC.
Sabrina’s great-grandfather, originally from Romagnano Sesia, was the cooper nicknamed ‘Ciupasell’, who dared to cure downy mildew by brushing the grapes one by one with a Bordeaux mixture. His intuition yielded great results which led to grandfather Luigi being awarded diplomas of merit as early as 1930.
A bit like our great-grandfather, curiosity and attention to quality have always distinguished us, but it is above all the desire to experiment while respecting tradition that has given us new stimuli and satisfaction. We like to go against the tide while respecting traditional canons: we believe in the personalisation of art and wine is a art for us!
Our company is small and our corporate philosophy has always focused on limited production quantities with great attention to every detail. This combinations is our main characteristic.
