THE VINEYARDS

The sea wind and millions of years of erosion and geological evolution have given these places an extraordinary microclimate and ideal conditions for the cultivation of vines in the high hills.

Thanks to the mixture of flora and fauna, the woods represent an important basin of oxygen and balance necessary for eco-friendly viticulture.

Every vineyard has its own particular characteristics in terms of exposure, altitude and soil composition. Each one occupies an optimal position, and is between 35 and 65 years old.

THE TRADITIONAL METHOD OF BORGO MARAGLIANO

The characteristics of the Loazzolo terroir are unique and extraordinary: the soil is sandy, tufaceous and calcareous, so it is very permeable but free from clay; this makes it perfect for producing wines with rich and elegant aromatic qualities, that can be aged for a long time.

The Vineyard altitude, the soil, extensive temperature changes, the sea wind and the presence of woods and hazelnut groves, along with favourable exposure, create the perfect alchemy to give the grapes those aromas and distinctive qualities that make these wines unique.

In the early Eighties, after assessing Loazzolo’s particular pedoclimatic situation, Dr. Corino, a man of great intuition and head of the Experimental Institute for Viticulture of Asti, suggested the planting of experimental vineyards with the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir varieties to produce Traditional Method Sparkling Wine in Loazzolo. Giuseppe and Carlo took up this challenge with great enthusiasm and determination.
