Cascina Ponchietta Agritourism
In Monte d'Alba, Marina and Vittorio run a traditional agritourism dedicated to the breeding of Piemontese cattle and production of cereals and wine, pursuing with great passion the old family tradition. Spread over about 13 hectares of land, the company produces only red wines, such as Nebbiolo Langhe, Barbera Piemonte, Langhe Freisa and Caio, available to guests who can taste them with cold meats, cheeses and pastries. Wines which owe their high quality and characterization to east-south and south-west exposure, at the height of 360 meters above sea level and the clayey land. The small yield per hectare and careful care of the vineyard allow you to bring in the cellar perfectly healthy and ripe grapes in order to obtain well-structured and balanced wines.
Since 2000, after a complete renovation of the old family home of Victor, made in respect of its original features, the couple started the accommodation business offering hospitality in 4 bedrooms and 3 brand new rooms in a simple style, but equipped with all comforts.
In the agritourism Cascina Ponchietta breakfast is a sweet, lingering moment of pleasure when guests are delighted with the aromas and flavors of the farm products, jams, juices, biscuits, cakes, yogurt, but also cold cuts, local and seasonal cheeses DOP and a good assortment of cereals come from organic farms in the area and excellent fair trade products.
Marina and Vittorio believe strongly in the value of land, as a key resource and wealth from which improve the environment in which we live. That is why for over twenty years they follow the guidelines of Cee of disciplinary integrated management in agriculture; with various tools and techniques of production and careful use of products that are aimed at regulating the ecosystems, Cascina Ponchietta contributes, in fact, to reduce the environmental impact, a commitment that embraces every aspect of business, for example the use of a photovoltaic system with 24 panels to produce independently from the electrical energy, the use of soaps produced by a company specialized in the area of 100% natural cosmetic products based on olive oil and yet, the presence of two solar panels that heat the water for showers and the pool.
