Our wines

A gamble on the combination of love and passion for wine and its ancient culture with the latest techniques of wine making, has brought new life to the La Mondianese estate.

The renovated nineteenth-century farmhouse combined with the state of the art cellar for winemaking and aging, dominate over fifteen acres of vineyards nestled gently in the hills of the Monferrato and Castagnole Montemagno, one of the best wine regions in Piedmont (Asti – Italy).

This is the home of Grignolino, Barbera and Ruchè wine, whose vines receive their unique and precious organoleptic characteristics as a gift from the sun and the earth.

La Mondianese is truly the cradle of choice for these noble wines.
