Ca’Richeta di Orlando Enrico in the beauty of Piemonte
The Ca’Richeta di Orlando Enrico’s history goes way back to 1800 since the Orlando-Morando family made high-quality wines. The family made wine even during the two World Wars, and Giuseppe Morando took over the family company after this. Every passing generation of the family learned about winemaking from their fathers and continued the family business. Enrico Orlando renamed the winery Ca’Richeta in honor of her grand-grand-grandmother. The artisanal winery is committed to making terroir-driven wines.
Sustainable and natural winemaking
The winery is still located at the same place where the family grew up. They own around 4 hectares of vineyards in the best regions of the area that are perfect for viticulture. The natural conditions here are ideal for growing healthy grapes. There is no use of machines, and everything like pruning, thinning, harvesting, grape picking, etc. is manual. Chemical fertilizers and herbicides are also not used. The natural methods protect the environment, and the company teamed up with iXem labs for this.
One of the best natural Langhe wines
The main grape varieties grown here are Nebbiolo, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Malvasia, and Moscato. These are used to make their famous red, white, rose, and dessert wines. Minimal amounts of sulphites are used during winemaking, and they prefer indigenous yeasts. The company also plans to renovate the winery and make use of typical Piedmont architecture. The ageing cellar is underground and features a temperature-controlling system to make sure the wines turn out perfect. Ca’Richeta is a winery worth visiting for a nice time.
