Castello di Uviglie
A bit of history
It is one of Piedmont’s historic wineries with a solid experience of five centuries. Simone Lupano passionately carries on the prestige of the company that today produces wine with the most modern technologies without losing the traditional methods of processing and winemaking in respect of the typicality of the territory.
The winery is located in one of the most fascinating villages of the Langhe: the Castle of Uviglie. This village owes its name to the Roman patronymic Avilius, the first traces of which are found in a document dated 1271. The castle was home to the most illustrious families of the time, including the Pico Gonzaga dynasty, until it was inherited by Count Emanuele Cacherano di Bicherasio, the man who conceived and founded FIAT.
Today the castle, as evidence of its architectural importance, is listed as an artistic asset under the Royal Decree Law of June 1939.
The rows of vines at Castello di Uviglie are cultivated according to the traditional Guyot method and the soil is rich in tuff and clay. During vinification, after careful manual selection of the bunches, the grapes are processed in such a way as to exalt and enhance the spirit of the season that grew them and the very characteristics of the land from which they originated. The wines bottled in their cellar are all wines with a structured character but harmoniously pleasing to the palate, the result of a history made up of passion and unconditional love for their land.
From their indigenous Monferrato vines, they create labels of Barbera, Grignolino, Albarossa and Freisa.
