The story of the Garesio family begins in far off lands and common roots. It starts in the vineyards of Salento, where Negroamaro grapes were pressed by bare feet, and reaches the Mondonio hills in Lower Monferrato in the Asti region, where the landscape is marked by rows of vines and woods, and life follows the rhythm of the seasons. Places far apart, but united by grape growing, winemaking traditions, hard work and respect for nature. Over the years, the passion that binds the Garesio family to wine transformed into a constant, painstaking research of the most favourable places for vine cultivation, growing indigenous grape varieties and opting for farming practices that respect the environment and the people working the land.
Since 2010, the family has acquired approximately 64 hectares of land, 21 of which under vines, divided among Serralunga d’Alba, the heart of Barolo, Perletto in Alta Langa, Incisa Scapaccino and Castelnuovo Calcea in Monferrato. Along with the vineyards, the Garesio family has undertaken the job of renovating and upgrading an old farmstead in Serralunga d’Alba. The aim of this top quality hospitality project is the creation of a place where wine becomes a daily experience, a full immersion in the flavors, nature, traditions and history of an area designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2014.
Balance, respect, and a deep understanding of vines and vineyards: Garesio “raw” material is naturally excellent. Each plot of land within the property has its own identity card and its own development, which is encouraged without excessive interference or manipulation. Their Nebbiolo vineyards are certified organic, an act of love and devotion towards one of the world’s rarest and most prized terroirs; the other vineyards are managed according to sustainable viticulture.
