“Vinification is an art that required love”
This was the opinion of Petrus Hieronymus Casalone when in 1734 he left Switzerland and arrived at Lu Monferrato to work as a colon and viticulturist in Marquises Millo’s estate. Since then, for about three hundred years this opinion has been handed down unchanged from one generation to another and it has become the inspiring principle of the family, remaining faithful to a centuries-old tradition without forgoing the benefits supplied by modern technology.
Casalone currently has 10 hectares of grapes planted on Bricco Santa Maria and Bricco Morlantino, two hills facing in front of Lu Monferrato, where the
clay-calcareous soils allow vines to find the ideal conditions to express all its own quality potential. Winemaking has been handed down to Simone, the youngest member of the family.
