Cascina Gilli is located in Castelnuovo Don Bosco, in the Monferrato, on a spine of hilltops of white soil completely grown by vineyard.
Gianni Vergano has bottled his first Freisa in 1985 and since then, going trough his patience and passionate effort, worked for the preservation and requalification of grapes that were almost extinguished elsewhere: Freisa, Bonarda Piemonte and Malvasia di Schierano.
Is particularly because of the Freisa that Cascina Gilli stands as one of Asti´s most influential wineries. We are so well known for Malvasia Gilli, a dessert sweet wine that is characterized by his intriguing aroma and freshness.
Our engage and competence in wine production, including an excellent Barbera d´Asti, has been confirmed both by many and loyal costumers and gratifying judgments from the most well-established wine guides, with the result that Cascina Gilli stands as one of Asti´s most prestigious wineries.
The winery, completely surrounded by vineyards, is structured by a modern but well concealed from the outside wine-cellar and by the eighteenth-century Villa that has been just restructured.
In here are located two spacious rooms where we offer our wine tasting to our guests.
The measures took to restore the Villa have fully respected the original configuration in order to lessen its impact on the landscape and the surrounding area.
The farmhouse is always ready to welcome the numerous tourists which want to discover this beautiful spot in the Monferrato that offers at the same time examples of Romanesque art and together sits in the deep untouched nature.
Near Cascina Gilli you can find Vezzolano Abbey a beautiful treasure of Romanesque Art.
Accommodations for short time are also possible in the farmhouse, enjoying the magnificent quiet surrounded by vineyards.
