12 hectares of vineyards - Winemakers from 4 generations
Our winery and our vineyards are located in Calosso, in the locality of Castagna, the last bastion of the Monferrato Astigiano overlooking the Langhe, a few hundred meters away as the crow flies. Castagna is a toponym already mentioned in the land registers of 1758 with already then 40 hectares of single-body vineyard, where our vineyards currently stand
Immediately after the end of the First World War, grandfather Agostino, born in 1900, abandoned his father Nicola's custom of selling all the grapes to shopkeepers, starting to vinify a small part of Barbera grapes. The company at that time consisted of about 1.5 hectares of vineyards and when Germano Bussi took over in the 1960s, the number rose to four. It was in '68 that the turning point took place, with Germano who began to vinify Muscat grapes, a very demanding and tiring process considering the equipment of that time. The must obtained following the hand pressing was, after clarification, filtered with the famous “Dutch bags”, a very slow and laborious process. The results were not long in coming and the desire to buy other vineyard plots grew, focusing mainly on the Moscato & Barbera varieties. Piero Bussi, third generation, has gradually entered the farm, currently run together with his son Federico, who today can count on 12 hectares of vineyards, focusing on the quality of the product, first in the vineyard and then in the cellar, using only grapes from from its own vineyards. Identifying wines, mirror of our territory, respecting nature, which currently reach, proudly, a dozen countries from 3 different continents. Driven by the passion for history and the desire to discover his origins, in 2000 Piero Bussi, after 10 years of research, published the historical book "Gente di Calosso".
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Valentina, New York
We had a great visit! Federico gave us a tour of the grounds and vineyards, explained the region and the production of wines and we enjoyed a thorough tasting of nine different wines. We, of course, purchased some wine to take home with us. Would highly recommend!
The tour was very interesting, Federico shared his knowledge and story of his family's wine making history. Very tasty wines (Moscato d'Asti DOCG is one of the best wines i've ever had!), very good value, definitely recommend it!
Abbiamo assaggiato oltre 10 vini insieme, potendo cosi capire molto più di ciò che era dentro i nostri calici. Sapientemente accompagnati da Federico che ha saputo evidenziare le peculiarità dei prodotti accompagnando i vini ad un tagliere ed uve moscato. Ne siamo usciti tutti con acquisti e la cantina ha acquisito nuovi clienti; capaci, preparati e con ottimi prodotti. Bravi!
The experience was great. We really enjoyed Federico's knowledge and hospitality. We got great explanation about the area and the winery and got to taste some really nice wines. He also recommended some other local experices in the area. We strongly recommended
We had an absolutely fantastic wine tasting for 7 of us. The value for money is excellent: tour of the vineyards, cellars, a tasting of 9 different wines and nibbles. Federico was friendly and informative and gave us a really good background to all the local grapes and areas. You can also buy the wines at very reasonable prices. I higly recommend!
GENTE DI CALOSSO
Driven by his passion for history and the desire to discover his origins, in 2000 Piero Bussi published the historical book "Gente di Calosso".
"To tell you the truth, when I went to school, I was not very good in any subject, but history fascinated me, especially that of ordinary people, for example, if I found an ancient coin in a vineyard, I was not interested in its value, almost always insignificant, but I liked, through the era in which it was coined, to imagine who had lost it, the anger and then the resignation experienced in having lost it.
I had always been fascinated by the stories of the old people of my village, especially those handed down by my grandfather and my grandmother. The years have passed and the passion has grown to make me want to deepen the roots of my roots. "
