Centovigne Cantina del Castello di Castellengo is located in northern Piedmont at the foot of Mt. Rosa, surrounded
by the Alpine chain to the North and stunning views of the Padana plain
to the South. This is the place where the prestigious Nebbiolo grape was
first cultivated before becoming famous in other areas of Piedmont.
Locally this grape is known as Spanna and together with Vespolina,
Croatina and Uva Rara are part of the history of wine producing in this
area since the 1700s.
Their passion for and knowledge of the world of wine producing led to a
decision to bring back to life a small area of vines located in the
area of Mottalciata. After the excellent results achieved from this
initial project they then started to take over some other small vineyards
which were owned by retired locals. This was the beginning of Centovigne
(the hundred vineyards), a modern company with historic roots. The wine
is still produced in the same castle cellars as it was back in the
1700s. Combining history with new technology is the reason they have
moved forward with their project in a continual daily challenge in order
to obtain first class results.
