Cantamessa is a delightful family-run winery and vineyards, located just a few kilometres south of the town of Asti in Alto Monferrato, in southern Piemonte. The company was founded in 1870 and the latest generations are in transition, son Luca gradually taking over from his parents Aldo and Giuliana. The family began organic conversion of the vineyards in 2017 with every bottle produced since 2020 certified organic.
Alongside Piemonte’s noblest of grapes, Nebbiolo, Barbera shines here at Cantamessa, the wines characterised by their fresh acidity, friendly tannins and luminous expression of fruit. The colourful insects that adorn the labels reflect the sustainability and biodiversity of the vineyards, Cantamessa seeing their own health inextricably tied to the health of the natural environment they live in.
