The new vineyard at Bricco Borio: here are the figures

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.

Cascina Castlèt 50th harvest: thanks to the support of all those of you

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
