The cellar

We have always had the passion for the viticulture. From the beginning of the 20th century, the administration on the property, originally worked by four share-farmer families, was divided in two parts: one to Miss Gina Castellini and the other one to her brother Isacco.

The aministrative responsibility of the farm fell on Miss Gina from 1968 till 1992, when her son Giovanni Vimercati decided to dedicate himself full-time to his passion: the viticulture.

Our property stretches over 34 hectares, in which 9 hectares are dedicated to our vineyards. We cultivate and produce our wines following the most current viticulture regulations and the “Consorzio Vini Franciacorta”, to which our farmhouse adheres as a member.

Nowadays, our wine-production company is managed by the last heirs of the Castellini family, Gianluigi and his sister Francesca. Reaching important goals, they have put a mark of considerable prestige on the winery.

From 1997 to 2004 the “Franciacorta DOCG” and the “Terre di Franciacorta Rosso” won the silver and bronze medal to CERVIM (International high altitude wines Competition ). Our wines are produced with grapes which are grown in our terraced vineyards . We use Guyot system and rammed cord system.

For this reason, some journalists define our production “heroic viticulture”. Our basement winery, situated near the farm, has wine vases of 400 hectolitres, 30 barriques and modern technologies to make wine.
