Monferrato & Barbera
The Monferrato area recently added to the Unesco World Heritage list, is a many-faceted territory. Amid the landscapes and products, little-known and precious treasures are just waiting to be discovered. The Monferrato area occupies a fertile triangle of terrain between Asti, Alessandria and its historical capital, Casale Monferrato. Vineyards fan out in all directions interspersed with castles and celebrated restaurants.
In Monferrato are very typical the so-called “infernot”: old, deep cellars dug several meters directly in a particular rock similar to the tuff. The original owners and builders of these wineries, although they did not have extensive knowledge of building or geology, were able to produce perfect works that are beautiful to visit.
The vineyard landscape of Monferrato, along with the “underground cathedrals” (the historical wine cellars) of Canelli, were recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site
Check out and time to say goodbye!
