The Winery has been founded on February 26, 1959 by 19 vine-growers from Vinchio and Vaglio Serra. It counts now 180 members, that are owners and tenants of about 320 hectares of vineyard. These vineyards are concentrated for the most part in Vinchio and Vaglio Serra. Only a restricted part is situated in the neighbouring villages (Incisa Scapaccino, Cortiglione, Nizza Monferrato). These lands, situated on the Alto Monferrato's hills, are not very fertile, being mostly calcareous and sandy. Most of the vineyards are located on very steep slopes, where plants are close each other. They exploit the best sun exposure. This viticulture needs the constant presence of man for most part of the work. For this reason, grapes give of their best: low yield (1,5/2 kilos of grapes for each vine stock), high sugar content.
Well... these grapes have all the characteristics to become a great wine. For the cultivation of vineyards, the members have a technical assistance service for the grape protection, in order to carry out a viticulture with low environmental impact, reducing the use of pesticides.
In order to exploit the excellent grape's capacities, the wine-grower co-operative has got advanced equipment, modern vinification systems, traditional oak casks and French oak barrels for the ageing of precious wines.
