Visiting Winemakers:

David (Domaine de Valmengaux) – David’s story is one of great friendships. David spent 20 years in IT and management, felt a strong desire to grow vines and make good wine. 50 friends came together and formed an agricultural grouping called Les Amis de Valmengaux to create wine that brings pleasure and emotion.

Paolo & Lidia (Rocco di Carpeneto) – From investment banking to wine making, Paolo and Lidia will have interesting stories to tell you. For example, their wines are named using a very interesting method. All the names are taken from Monferrino Glossario by Giuseppe Ferraro. This is 19th century dialect and they’ll tell you more about each name when you taste their wine.

Beatrice (Corvagialla) – Beatrice lives in true harmony with nature. The vineyards co exist with 300 olive trees, a vegetable garden, fruit trees, chicken, geese and goats. Ask her about Tosca and Tullia, who have been on the winemaking journey with her.
