The vines we cultivate
Different varieties according to the soil
Piedmont is synonymous of wine. Our region is made up of different areas in terms of geology and morphology. As a consequence, the vine varieties cultivated in the region are different to better express the soil caracteristics. Marl, clay, limestone, sand alternate even in small parcels.
The result is clear also in the wine: the same variety can be deeply influenced by the soil and return a wine with peculiar notes. Visiting our hills means looking for these multiple and micro differences. That’s why we firmly believe that to approach the wine, you must start from its birth place: the vineyards.
