Rich history of Cantina di Nizza
Cantina di Nizza was established in October 1955 in Monferrato when the community decided to bring along all the farmers and create something new and special. The winery owes its foundation to the people and patriotism of the town who have always loved winemaking from the beginning. Six farmers, two lawyers, and two accountants started the co-operative that included more than 200 members inside the first two years. During the 1970s, the company became one of the top Italian wine producers thanks to rich traditions and modern winemaking technology.
Vineyards in the best Piedmont regions
The Nizza DOCG area is well-known for a long time for its unique Barbera wine. The ideal natural conditions of the terroir and wine culture allow them to grow the best grapes for wines. The company owns around 550 hectares of vineyards and grows almost 50,000 quintals of grapes every year. The majority features the Barbera grape, but they also grow Chardonnay, Cortese, Moscato, Brachetto, and Dolcetto. These are used to make red, white, sparkling, and dessert wines.
Innovative and hard work at the winery
The winery has always maintained a nice balance between their traditional methods and modern innovative machinery. Instead of old vats, they now use stainless steel tanks for fermentation. Manual presses have been replaced by new pneumatic press along with filtering systems to obtain clean wines. The traditional ageing cellar features oak barrels for the maturation of wines. The wines perfectly reflect the winemaking culture of Nizza Monferrato and is a great place for wine tourism.
