On the gently sloping hills of the Alta Langa Astigiana and Basso Monferrato, Piemonte produces about one-third of the world’s total cultivation of a grape that is as globally widespread as it is cultivated: Moscato Bianco.
Greener, better, and more beautiful. The wineries of the Langhe have transformed over time, abandoning their old facades to embrace newer, bolder forms that fold into the surrounding countryside. Here are the newest houses of wine that follow the sinuous tracks of the hills and round off the sharp angles of ancient farmhouses once held by estate owners of another era.
Wine is a captivating mix of color, aroma, flavor, and a certain, poetic nuance. One intrinsic characteristic that wine is lacking, however, is form. The necessity of conserving intact all the qualities of this precious nectar so that it could be comfortably transported for distribution and commercialization presented a dilemma since the dawn of time for wine producers who needed to give wine a practical, physical dimension. This dilemma resolved, the market and wine’s widespread diffusion have demanded that new questions be answered, that of product communication. The end goal has always been the same: to win the trust and loyalty of the consumer.
