Cascina del Pozzo
Piedmont – Roero, Italia
A Barbera specialist, the Cascina del Pozzo farm produces white, rosé, and red wines on the Piedmont hills of Roero, where the production of wine still takes place with passion, respect of nature and tradition.
Situated in the Roero area of Piedmont and surrounded by beautiful hills, the Cascina del Pozzo winery has spanned five generations of the Marchisio family. The tradition has been handed down from father to son, with their wine production still abiding by the same techniques and vines from the 40s.
No herbicides, chemicals or fertilizer are used, and each bottle is aged in large wooden barrels. Grapes are collected using traditional methods and only those with a long-standing history in the area (such as Arneis, Barbera and Nebbiolo) are used. This respects both the environment and local winemaking traditions, with each bottle of Cascina del Pozzo wine presenting a true, delicious taste of history and terroir.
