In the heart of Piedmont, between the municipalities of Castagnole Monferrato, Grana and Montemagno, lies the Montalbera farm. Since its foundation at the beginning of the 20th century, one of the company's main objectives has been to create Piedmontese wines with character, that could best interpret the unique characteristics of the territory and enhance them in every glass. Over time, the company has been able to fulfil this promise and, with commitment and perseverance, has succeeded in establishing itself as one of the most interesting wineries in Piedmont. Today, its vineyards cover six hills in the area between Grana and Montemagno, while the valley floor is home to a vast cultivation of Piedmontese hazelnuts. Most of the hectares are planted with Ruchè. The age of the vineyards varies from seven to thirty years, and each of the vines is treated with appropriate care. The main form of cultivation is based on the low guyot, and every cultivation operation is carried out by hand to respect local tradition as much as possible. Name and address of producer/distributor: Montalbera - Cascina Montalbera, 1, 14030 Castagnole Monferrato (AT). Products from this winery should be stored in a cool, dry place away from heat sources.
