The elegant country house, dating from the 18th century, includes two separate residential units, a winery, a warehouse and a large wine tasting room. The grounds and vineyards surrounding the main house include a detached gatehouse that has been converted into a vacation rental unit.

Winery

There is a modern winery at the rear of the house. Until recently, the estate's own grapes were pressed and processed here to make very high-quality organic wines. The capacity of the winery is currently about 40,000 bottles per annum, but this can be expanded.

Adjacent to the winery there is a tasting / presentation room, plus a large storage room where the estate's wines were stored and matured in barriques.

A large portico in front of the cellar offers space for several vehicles.

The Wines

The current owner has produced around 24,000 bottles of very high-quality organic wines per year: most of the production was exported, but partly it was sold directly from the estate. The wine branding is well-established, and the wines have received numerous international prizes and awards. If required, the branding can be continued by the new owner. Wine sales are still active, and can be taken over by the new owner.

Garden

The winery is located on a quiet country road: from there, a wrought-iron automatic gate leads via a driveway into the courtyard of ​​the property. There is enough parking space for several vehicles.

The very well-kept, park-like garden is located on two sides of the main house. Two 300 year old plane trees give the garden its elegant character.

On the south side of the main house there is a large pool with a sun terrace, surrounded by a well-tended lawn, flowering shrubs and trees that provide welcome shade.

Vineyard & Grounds

The grounds cover a total of around 7.2 hectares, of which 2.5 hectares are currently planted with vines in production. The varieties are mainly Barbera d'Asti DOCG, plus Monferrato Merlot DOC and Monferrato Sauvignon Blanc - additionally, 4 hectares have been prepared for a new planting, and the necessary planting permits have been granted.

The vineyards are currently rented out on a short-term contract to a family of winemakers from the neighborhood.

Our personal opinion: this beautiful winery has excellent potential - the infrastructure and permits are all in place, so that a new owner can quickly restart the operation. Of the three existing, separate residential units, two can easily be used for vacation rentals.
