The winery La Maranzana is a cooperative established in 1959 by growers living in Maranzana area. At present, it has around 200 members and owns about 400 hectares of vineyards.
Maranzana is situated on the lovely hills of Piedmont, amidst the bright green vines and woodland. It lies at the heart of the Monferrato area, universally known as a classic wine area. The town belongs to the “Buffer Zone” of the UNESCO World Heritage “Vineyard Lands – Langhe-Roero-Monferrato”. It is here that Piedmont growers produce high-quality DOCG wines.
The grapes of the cooperative‘s members are evaluated according to a quality system from 5 to 30 points.
Thus, the higher the grapes quality, the higher the grapes price. Over the past 10 years, we have consistently focused on low yields and high quality of bottled wines.
The investment in the winery has been significant. Currently the winery La Maranzana uses modern equipment for a controlled winemaking process. High-quality red wines are refined and aged in oak barrels combining technology with tradition.

La Mesma is a family business meticulously run by the three Rosina sisters: Paola, Francesca and Anna. It is located in Monterotondo (Province of Alessandria) at the very heart of the Gavi DOCG region in Italy.
Nestled in the peaceful, green countryside between Piedmont and Liguria, seemingly far from the sea, the region benefits considerably from coastal influences. The estate’s Gavi La Mesma DOCG production relies on 64 acres of Cortese grape vines planted in fine medium-blend soil on southward exposed hillsides at an altitude of about 984 feet. Their aim is to make expressive wines through hard work on the vineyards and minimal intervention in the cellar. La Mesma wines must preserve varietal integrity, vintage and a sense of place. They are exported all over the world. The farm is a currently in organic conversion. Their goal is to ensure a long and healthy life to their vines. La Mesma encourages biodiversity: their vines are pruned with the Simonit and Sirch method. A final selection of grapes is made during picking, prior to soft pressing.

Le Ginestre is a winery located in the village of Grinzane Cavour, approximately 4 miles from Alba in the Langhe hills in Piedmont, in northwestern Italy. Grinzane Cavour is one of the only villages in this outstanding wine-growing area where Barolo can be produced. In the XVIII century, during the reign of Emmanuel II, most of the land around Grinzane Castle belonged to Count Camillo Benso of Cavour, the political architect of the Unification of Italy and Mayor of our area for 17 years. When the estate was sold, the land was purchased by local farmers, including our forebears. When Franco Audasso took over this smallholding in 1980, he began to sell his wines with the help of his wife, Giulia Vacchetti. Later their children, Gian Luca and Barbara, started working in the company as well. Over the course of the years the initial property has been extended with the acquisition of other vineyards, that have been partly replanted using the clones that are best suited to the type of soil. Franco takes care of the vineyards; Gian Luca manages the cellars and Giulia and Barbara are responsible for sales.
