The vineyard speaks and tells its story. This is how the open-air exhibition at the Cascina Castlèt winery in Costigliole d'Asti came about. It proposes an itinerary of environmental education and respect for the land, trees and animals. In the vineyards, around the winery, there is a poster that tells the story of life between the rows of vines: from animals (hedgehogs, birds, hares, insects) to trees (mulberry trees, cherry trees, oaks), from the importance of biodiversity to the architectural elements of the rural landscape with its “ ciabot ” and votive chapels. The project was created with the boys and girls of the Penna Agricultural Institute of Asti , coordinated by their teachers," says winegrower Mariuccia Borio .
Planting a vineyard has always been a gesture of optimism, even more so nowadays. At Cascina Castlèt, we have endless amounts of optimism and faith in the future, along with plenty of tenacity. After four years of hard work (exactly 1334 days from the first excavation ), the arrangement of wires and posts that are going to support the 22,170 vine stocks planted on the hill of bricco Borio in Costigliole d'Asti has finally been completed. We are in the heart of the area that bears our family name. Gently rolling hills, facing south. On a clear day you can take in the entire circle of the Piedmontese Alps, with Monviso acting as sentinel. The new vineyard is divided
Vespa Barbera d'Asti 2019 and Uceline Uvalino 2013 have been included in the 2020 edition of 5StarWines, the annual wine selection organised by Vinitaly. Both have been assigned a score of 92/100. In this fourth, "agile", edition, over 2,000 samples were tasted by a jury of international experts; 847 of these were selected and then included in 5StarWines - the Book. And we're among them!
Before writing to you, I waited until the soil was ready for the planting of my new vineyard. At this moment in which our lives are somewhat suspended, in which the uncertainty we are experiencing is frightening, I wanted to send you a message of hope, because planting a vineyard is a symbol of the future that lies ahead. In 2020, Cascina Castlèt will be celebrating its 50 th harvest. This is a milestone, both in terms of hard work and life, reached thanks to the support of all those of you who have accompanied us on our journey over the years. I would love to have the opportunity to be able to thank each and every one of you
