Francesca Castaldi and her family farm their small plots in the Alto Piemonte. This hard working family produces some lovely, elegant wines, all from the cool climate area around Fara. Small production, family-owned and operated, quality first, finesse over power…all the philosophies we love.

The Erbaluce is classic, spicy and full of floral and mint notes, with a beautiful back end acid.

The Vespolina is a wonderfully crisp, crunchy red, from the indigenous local grape. High toned but with many layers of persimmon and cranberry.

The Fara is a classic Nebbiolo – elegant and fine, Pinot Noir like in perfume and texture. A wine that blossoms with an hour in the decanter.
