Vintage wines - Cascina Garitina

When we talk about family wineries with history, that’s Cascina Garitina from the Piedmont region of Italy. This winery is named after great-grandmother Margherita who founded it in 1900 – “Garitina” is the diminutive form of Margherita in the Piedmont dialect.

Just like the previous four generations, current owner Gianluca Morino only grows blue varieties of grapes for his red wines. And like his ancestors, Gianluca knew since his childhood that he wanted to be a winemaker. In the Asti province he mainly tends vines from the traditional Barbera variety, which grows on the best exposures – it has an exceptional tolerance for sun and heat. Brachetto, Dolcetto, Pinot Nero, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are also grown, though to a lesser extent.

The unique genius loci of the place where the vines are grown is evident in the taste of Cascina Garitina’s original wines. Gianluca goes against the conservative trend and instead of classic corks uses high-quality screw caps equipped with special membranes that enable regulation of the wine’s oxidation. Thanks to the screw caps the risk of the wine being degraded, as can happen with cork, is also eliminated.
