The Alvio Pestarino’s Winery was founded in 1919 when Pestarino Giovanni bought a Cascina with a small vineyard in Barcanello di Capriata d’Orba. Since then, three generations have been involved in the cultivation of the vine, until in the nineties Alvio, Giovanni’s nephew, began the construction of a new cellar.

The fourth generation is represented by Andrea, he studied at the University of Alba in Enology. This has allowed the maintenance of tradition but it has also led to innovation, thanks to the introduction of new oenological techniques.

Region

Our vineyards are located in the upper Monferrato and they are divided into Cortese di Gavi, Dolcetto, Barbera, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Vioner and Timorasso. Cortese grapes give birth to the Gavi DOCG, which is the most produced wine in our business, the so- called Grande Bianco Piemontese. This wine is produced entirely from grapes grown exclusively in 11 municipalites. The uniqueness of this product is the result of  the particular geographical features of this area including the proximity to the sea.

The wine Dolcetto is strongly linked to the tradition of the hills of the high Monferrato. Its promotion and enhancement are our goal. The wine Ovada DOCG is produced from this project. This is a Dolcetto produced according to strict rules in terms of yield and aging, whose grapes can be grown exclusively in 22 municipalites in the hills near Ovada. This wine comes from the vineyards with the best exposures.

Production

Today, as it was  then, great attention is paid to the cultivation of vineyards and to every phase of the process: a healthy and ripe grape is the basis of a good wine. Our philosophy is to produce a high quality wine. We want that customers could find the essence of that wine in each bottle.
