Philosophy
At the beginning of the 18th century, the Pezzalunga hill was already described, in an inventory drawn up by the Barnabites, as land planted to vine. The Vercesi del Castellazzo winery has its own vineyards precisely on these hill slopes. The estate covers some 20 hectares of Miopliocenic soil composed of marly clays. 18 hectares out of a total of 20 are planted to specialized vineyards facing South. The grape varieties include: Croatina, Barbera, Pinot Noir, Ughetta and Cabernet Sauvignon, with a planting pattern of 7000 plants per hectare; the Guyot and the spurred cordon training systems are both used. Our focus is on achieving the best quality by means of practices such as short pruning and cluster thinning, i.e. a low yield per hectare.

The Vercesi del Castellazzo winery produces natural wines and is member of the VinNatur association.
Since 1995, our winery has complied with EC legislation on the reduction of environmental impact. Our agricultural practices are designed to safeguard nature; our vineyards are completely grassed; no herbicides are used; vine cuttings are shred in order not to deprive the soil of nutrients; copper and sulphur are the only fungicides employed. We do not use sulphur dioxide in vinification, and only tiny amounts of it are employed in the bottling process. We rely only on wild yeasts – i.e. our own yeasts - instead of cultured ones and our cask-aged wines are not filtered.

All our actions are influenced by a strong respect for what we produce.
