  • Other Information:Reason why we produce Il Carica l'Asino: The story of this wine is very special and it starts in 2005 when the farm purchased a stable surrounded by vineyards, at a region called “Valle Asinari” (“Vale of the Donkeys”). These vineyards are grown and soon it is discovered the diversity of two parcels of Cortese Alto Monferrato. We've asked the previous owner, a nice vivid lady of the 1922, that was pleased to explain it. When her husband found out about this variety, “Carica l'Asino” (“Load the Donkey”), through their friends from Acqui Terme, they decided to grow it in their land at the region of “Valle Asinari” ("Valley of the Donkeys”). The curious existence of “Carica l'Asino” in that region combined with Bruna's passion for Donkeys gave birth to the “Carica l'Asino” white wine.
