Rich winemaking heritage of Cantine Povero
Cantine Povero is located in Cisterna d’Asti, a fascinating village in the heart of Piedmont, where Roero, Monferrato, and Langhe meet. The owner’s grandfather planted the first vineyards in 1948 because he had great love and affection towards the land and wanted to keep the tradition of winemaking going started by his ancestors in 1837. Since 1837 the Povero family is committed to offering the best expressions of the terroirs of its 45 hectares of land. Matching the traditions passed down by their ancestors with the innovations of today, they practice organic farming, respecting the land, and supporting biodiversity.
