Vinchio-Vaglio Serra Winery
The Winery was founded on February 26, 1959 by 19 vine-growers from Vinchio-Vaglio Serra. It now boasts 180 members-owners and tenants of about 320 hectares of vineyard.
These vineyards are concentrated for the most part in Vinchio and Vaglio Serra. Only a restricted part is situated in the neighbouring villages (Incisa Scapaccino, Cortiglione, Nizza Monferrato). These lands, situated on the hills of Alto Monferrato, are not very fertile, being mostly calcareous and sandy. Most of the vineyards are located on very steep slopes, where plants are close to each other. They exploit the best sun exposure. This viticulture needs the constant presence of man for most part of the work. For this reason, grapes give their best: low yield (1,5/2 kilos of grapes for each vinestock), high sugar content. Well… these grapes have all the characteristics for great wines. For the cultivation of vineyards the members have technical assistance for the grape protection, in order to carry out a viticulture with a low environmental impact, reducing the use of pesticides.
In order to exploit the excellent capacities of the grapes, the wine-grower co-operative has advanced equipment, modern vinification systems, traditional oak casks and French oak barrels for the ageing of precious wines.
