The Castagnero farm is spread over 13 hectares of land. Of these, 8 hectares are dedicated to vineyards with native vines of Barbera d’Asti, Grignolino d’Asti and Cortese; 2 hectares are intended for the cultivation of barley and hemp used for the production of beers; the remaining ones, host fruit trees, hazelnuts and wood plots. In the Langhe, the family also owns a small Alta Langa vineyard, where they grow Pinot Noir.

The farm’s cultural history dates back to the early 1900s, when the first Barbera vines were planted. Initially, wine production was limited to the needs of family and friends. However, during the nineties it was decided to open up to the market, while maintaining the most rigorous respect for the vineyards, wine and the characteristics of the soil and nature.

Thus, the production of Barbera is flanked by two other typical Monferrato vines: Grignolino: «the red wine – as Silvia says – that best expresses the character of the Monferrato inhabitants, with its marked tannins and that mixture of scents of Rosehip, berries, sage, spices and dry fruits» and Cortese.

Cellar and vineyards are located on one of the highest points of Agliano, around 250 meters above sea level. The property is therefore called the “Casa del Bric”, the House on the Hill. The “vigna d’la cioca“, or the bell vineyard, is the oldest. It is over 100 years old; the variety is Barbera and is protected by a large walnut tree that stands out in the center. Thousands of years ago, right here, there was the sea that helped to form soils rich in precious elements and minerals.
