Late May and early June weekends - Montù Beccaria (PV)
Spring wine tastings at the Castellazzo
Dear friends,
here we again with our spring tastings!

The tastings will take place in the following weekends from 11am to 7pm:
• May 20th-21st;
• May 27th-28th;
• June 2nd-3rd-4th;
• June 10th-11th.

We'll be pleased to let you taste and discover the wines of the 2016 vintage and the new vintages of our reserve wines.

You will find the Gugiarolo 2016, with its good body and a fine balance thanks to a lengthy sur lie aging of 8 months, the Vespolino 2016 that combines a full body with nice spicy notes, a great version of the Barbera Clà from the difficult 2014 vintage, a surprisingly good Pinot Noir Luogo dei Monti (if you bear with me, I will tell yo why...) and finally the Fatila 2011: we presented it in autumn, but now it has benefited from some more aging in bottle..

We are especially proud of these wines, but of course you will find and taste all the others. Please remember that special discounts will be available on all wines during these weekends. You will find a tasty buffet with salumi, cheese and other local good food.

See you in Montù Beccaria at the Castellazzo... don't forget to bring the sun with you!

All November 2016 weekends - Montù Beccaria (PV)
Tasting of our wines at the Castellazzo
Dear friends,
November is here again and during all November weekends we will open as usual the Castellazzo for a tasting of our wines.
The November tasting is the most important test for our wines and your comments are really welcomed. Sometimes we fall too much in love with our wines and sometimes we enthused about a single part of the process (like a new winemaking technique) losing sight of the whole. So, it's up to you to bring us back putting our feet on the ground.

We will start with the 5th-6th November weekend and go along until the end of the month.
Our winery will be open from 10am to 6pm both on Saturday and Sunday.
It will be possible to purchase the wines enjoying a special discount (available only on the November tastings).

See you at the Castellazzo... don't forget to bring the sun with you!

Late April and early May weekends - Montù Beccaria (PV)
Spring wine tastings at the Castellazzo
Dear friends,
last Spring we didn't do the usual tasting of our new wines, but this year we'll recover our good old habits. The 2015 vintage has been a great one, but we're also really proud of our Pezzalunga 2014, which is far superior to our expectations, considering the poor 2014 vintage. You know we don't like to boast, but in this case we'll make an exception :-)

Our winery will be open from 10.30am to 6.30pm on April 23, 24, 25 and 30, and on May 1, 7 and 8.
To enjoy the tasting better, you will find a selection of local cheese and cold cuts and some traditional food. We're offering the usual special discount price for the Spring tastings.

See you in Montù Beccaria at the Castellazzo... don't forget to bring the sun with you!

The 2014 harvest was very difficult because of the weather and we were foreseeing a not exactly memorable vintage, but in the end the wines turned out better than we expected. Our Barbera Clà, for instance, has a fantastic dark colour and a great full body. But we will talk about these subjects tasting the wines!
See you at the Castellazzo in the following weekends: November 8th-9th, 15th-16th, 22nd-23th and 29th-30th.
