About This Vineyard
Cascina Corte is an organic farm, which we aim to use as a model for best organic production. It is also however a real working vineyard, which this year produced 15,000 bottles of Dolcetto variety wines, of two different qualities: a Dolcetto di Dogliani made from the grapes in the South of the vineyard, and a Cru obtained from the more valuable grapes of the Vigna Pirochetta. This part of the vineyard is exposed to the East, and the vines here are over 60 years old. Here at Cascina Corte, the development of our wine is closely followed by two production professionals. Giuseppe Caviola is our winemaker, and he is responsible for analyzing the wine, and making various recommendations during the different stages of production. Our second expert is Giampiero Romana, our agronomist. Gaimpiero works with us on the management of our vineyard, and recommends which rootstock to use for the new vines.
