TRADITION - CONNECTION TO THE TERROIR
RESPECT FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
For two centuries we have been cultivating vines and telling the story of this terroir through our wines. Harvest after harvest, we sink our roots deeper into the magnificent Langa earth. We work these vineyards with respect and we take responsibility for them as a precious legacy. This is a generous land, which gives exquisite wines of great elegance and exceptional longevity, making them famous throughout the world.
“Being a grower means being a custodian of this land that we have inherited and will pass on to our children”
Our vineyards in
We have been working these vineyards in Monforte d’Alba for more than two centuries and five generations. Harvest after harvest we sink our roots deeper into this Langa earth. We make wine with the desire to conserve this precious legacy, this generous land. A land that gives exquisite wines of great elegance and exceptional longevity, making them famous throughout the world.
ORGANIC AND SUSTAINABLE
For over 15 years we have been committed to growing methods that respect both man and the environment. We growers are also inhabitants of these vineyards!
We have recently obtained the Sustainable Enterprise certification Ecoprowine and Organic Enterprise certification by the CCPB.
The Organic Method limits treatment for fungal attacks to copper and sulphur. Chemical pesticides, insecticides and herbicides are proscribed.
The Sustainable Production code orients its choices towards reducing total environmental impact, especially with respect to energy consumption. Our cellar is designed to maximise production efficiency and reduce energy needs. We are electricity-autonomous thanks to our photovoltaic installation. In addition, we have planted a forest to help replace environmental oxygen and create a refuge for local fauna, to offset the winegrowing’s upper hand in their natural habitats.
