Costigliole d'Asti

San Martino

San Martino is the name of the village in the municipality of Costigliole D’Asti, where my farm is located.

The old farmhouse that houses my winery and its vineyards are located on a ridge which, on one side dominates Tanaro Valley with its beautiful Castles, and at the same time, is nestled in a natural amphitheater of exceptional beauty, studded with little churches and bell towers located among the vineyards and breathtaking hills of lower Monferrato Astigiano.

It’s not uncommon to enjoy a beautiful sunset over the Alps, a breathtaking sight.

Purchased in 2016, the estate has undergone extensive renovations, including the partial replanting of its vineyards.  We now have approximately 8 hectares of vineyards with autochthonous varieties such as Barbera, Nebbiolo and Grignolino as well as international varieties such as Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Blanc.

Regarding organic certification, the vineyards are currently “in transition”. This means they’re already organically managed, i.e., without the use of synthetic pesticides or herbicides, but it takes time to obtain the relevant certifications.

It’s here that I cultivate the grapes that are used in the production of my wines: BARBERA D’ASTI DOCG; BARBERA D’ASTI SUPERIORE DOCG; PIEMONTE DOC SAUVIGNON AND PIEMONTE MERLOT DOC SAUVIGNON.
