Wines of the Langhe
Paolo and Chiara's passion for hospitality goes hand in hand with their passion for agriculture. To this end they create products telling the story of the Langhe region. The owners continue to make wine and grow hazelnuts, following a family tradition that lead to the creation of their agriculture business in the 70s.
Wine tells the story of this region, written with the active participation of agritourists at certain stages of production, from the vine to the bottle.
The wine here is the end result of a long process which respects tradition, but has nonetheless developed over the years: agriculture plays a fundamental role in protecting the land of the Langhe, and even more so since it was awarded UNESCO status. On the vine and in the wine cellar, nature determines the fermentation periods.
Respect and awareness of nature is expressed by:
IN THE VINEYARD
Growing indigenous varieties;
Following practices with low environmental and human impact.
Natural grassing as biodiversity index
Production of grapes per hectare lower than the permitted limit
Manual harvest with the grapes placed in boxes
IN THE CELLAR
Natural fermentation of the must
Natural malolactic winter fermentation
Wines fined but not filtered so as not to change the wine's natural organic balance
Sulfite content is always between 50 to 70 mg/l
Aging in oak barrels from 400 to 1000 litres
Wines with labels marked Cascina Sant'Eufemia are D.O.C. red wines from the Nebbiolo d'Alba, Barbera d'Alba and Dolcetto d'Alba area. Then there are the "Suris", a sweet rosé wine, aromatic and lightly sparkling, and the "Sot-vos" meditation wine flavoured with quina, derived from an infusion of different kinds of medicinal herbs and spices.
