Product ID: 43134
Description

Discover Castello di Neive and its 150 acre estate located in the Neive town council, in the Langhe area of the Piedmont region.
The estate is owned by the Stupino brothers and sisters, Anna, Giulio, Italo e Piera. They were all born in Neive, and so were their parents, grandparents and great-grandparents.
The history of the company began when their father, Giacomo, started to purchase, whenever possible, vineyards and land in extremely favourable locations. In the small cellars of their home, they began the first production of wine for domestic consumption and to sell in bulk. The number of vineyards acquired by Giacomo grew and with it also the production and the ambitions of the family. In 1964 they purchased the castle with its spacious cellars, with more farmsteads, plus more land.
The family renovated the castle’s cellars, reorganised the vineyards neglected by the previous owners and started producing wine according to modern methods. When Giacomo died, in 1970, Giulio end Italo oversaw the transition from tenant farming to direct management of the land. It is at this time that Castello di Neive began to bottle its wines and to introduce them to the rest of Italy...

It is at this time that Castello di Neive began to bottle its wines and to introduce them to the rest of Italy and abroad. 
In 1978 Castello di Neive started a clonal selection programme of Arneis, a grape long forgotten and abandoned because of its scarce productivity and lack of knowledge in white wine vinification.
25 hectares of the property are devoted to grape growing and all the production, which amounts to an average of 12.000 cases a year, is obtained from Castello di Neive’s own vineyards.
The ‘Casetta del Castello’ is the winery's newly refurbished touring and tasting centre. It is the ideal place to get to know four generations of winemaking and have a chance to discover the vineyards, the wines and the people who make them.
Enjoy tastings of award-winning wines and discover the vineyards and winemaking techniques.
Wine lovers can also visit the historical Castello di Neive cellars, dating back to the 16th and 17th century and recently renovated and transformed in the ideal location for the aging of the winery's most prestigious wines.
