Luca Ferraris is the largest in Ruche

Luca Ferraris Agricola is the largest family-owned agricultural company in the seven municipalities of the Ruchè-growing region. Tradition says the Ruchè grape has been present since ancient times in the area, and wines made from it were consumed locally in commemorative events. Don Giacomo Cauda, the parish priest of the town who died in 2008, was the one who recovered this indigenous grape, personally overseeing its cultivation and vinification into a mono-varietal wine. His efforts led other grape growers to also put their faith in Ruchè, which was rewarded when it received formal DOC status.

Best vineyards in Castagnole Monferrato

The vineyards are present in the hills of Monferrato in Piedmont, which is home to the Ruche and quality red and white wines. Vines are planted in Bric d’Bianc, Montio, Dorati, San Giacomo, Santa Eufemia, Montemagno, and Mondiasene. The main grape variety grown here is Ruche, and Viognier and Barbera are also grown. These grapes are used to make their Ruche di Castagnole Monferrato DOCG, Barbera d’Asti DOCG, and Superiore wine.

Modern, advanced winery

The new winery was built in 2009 just in time to press the Viognier harvest those days. Despite the low global economy, the company was rapidly growing, and it was necessary to upgrade to maintain the high quality of their wines and increase production. The cellar and ageing room are underground and have controlled temperature and humidity for vinification. The wines are mysterious in nature and truly reflect the qualities of the grapes.
