The Marchesi Alfieri wine estate with its historic cellars is located amongst the heights in the Alfieri Castle in San Martino Alfieri. Standing high above the adjoining hills between Asti and Alba, the castle's position makes it an ideal location for the production of wines in the grand Piedmont manner.
Estate owners Emanuela, Antonella, and Giovanna San Martino di San Germano manage the wine production in collaboration with Mario Olivero, Estate Director and Enologist.
The esteemed Barbera d'Asti is the jewel of the estate's production accounting for the majority of the 100.000 bottles of wine produced from the 25 hectares of vineyard. With strict control, all wine production including grape harvest is captive to the estate's property in San Martino Alfieri.
Recently, rooms within the estate have been restored to welcome the enthusiastic wine tourist.
Single varietal Barbera from 11 hectares of our vineyards differing in age, exposure, type of soil and clones. The grapes are harvested and vinified separately and final blending takes place only after malolactic fermentation
