The Consorzio

The Consorzio coordinates and promotes activities valorising the area of origin of Moscato bianco grapes, whose cultivation covers approx. 10,000 hectares across 51 municipalities of the provinces of Alessandria, Asti and Cuneo. More than 1,400 ha have a gradient over 40%, with 330 ha of this area over 50% – these are vineyards historically named “sorì”, where no mechanical equipment can be used and vines are tended exclusively by hand. The Asti hills were the first vineyard landscape to be included in the UNESCO World Heritage list.

The Hills

The hills of the Langhe are elongated, with extended crests and steeper slopes, while those of the Monferrato are rounder and gentler to look upon. Two different landscapes, with infinite variations. Where life prospers among the orderly rows of grapevines, tended by hand as they have always been. Where the seasons bring new colors against the majestic crown of the Alps, where the horizon stretches out to infinity. Where every detail amazes and warms the heart, to be treasured forever.
