The estate

Our estate is located in Sala Monferrato.
It sits atop of a gentle hill about 264 meters above sea level. The estate stretches some 6 hectares, 4 of which have productive vineyards.The limestone-marl soils, white, light gray or beige, rich in carbonate of Calcium, combined with the optimal exposure of our vineyards and low production yields, ensure optimal conditions for the production of wines of extreme quality.
Our deeply alluring countryside yields the finest grapes, producing wines in the very best tradition of Piedmont.

The Monferrato

Monferrato is a historical-geographical region of Piedmont that extends into the provinces of Alessandria and Asti, from the river Po to the Ligurian Apennines. Our estate, Cascina San Pietro, is located in the lower Monferrato a hilly area which, thanks to the climate influenced by both the presence of the Alps and the sea, represents an ideal area for the cultivation of the vines.
The landscape, in fact, represents a mixture of hills and plains, which also leave many spaces to wild areas, meadows and woods. These territorial peculiarities mean that, according to the seasons, the landscape assumes the most varied shades of colors, from the white of the snow-covered slopes in winter, to the first tenuous green, dotted with chromatic spots of houses and crops, up to the golden reds and yellows of the autumn vineyards.
