This cooperative cellar on the border with the Valle d’Aosta was established by ten members in 1960. Its mission has always been to promote Nebbiolo di Carema and protect its typicality (Carema is a Slow Food Presidium product). The cooperative now has 110 members, who cultivate 19 hectares of vines, 14 of which are given over to nebbiolo. The grapes grow in the Carema valley on hollow terrains that protect them from the wind. The vineyards are characterised by lovely – and unique – stone columns, built in this singular area to keep the grapes warm during the night. The cellar currently produces two types of Carema: tradizionale, aged two years, and riserva, aged for three years. Both are vinified solely with Nebbiolo grapes and, built to last as they are, are excellent even after 15-20 years. A third of production is earmarked for export abroad, the rest is distributed locally.
The cellar also produces Villanova (“Metodo Classico” Nebbiolo sparkling wine), Canavese Nebbiolo, as well a few table wines.
