The Ghiga family has very deep-rooted farming origins dating back to the early 70s in Castiglione Tinella, an area particularly suited for cultivating Muscat grapes. Mario Ghiga was the first to launch the business by producing most of the grapes for wine to be sold to the sparkling wine industries. Mario also bought a lot of new land, located around the “Ghiga Hill” house (which is still where the company is based). On this white and sunny land, he planted more Muscat vineyards; vineyards which today produce high quality grapes.
Mario’s entrepreneurial activity continued over the years not only with the purchase of new plots but also by creating Dolcetto and Barbera vineyards, which are located in the municipality of Costigliole d’Asti. A typical area of Barbera d’Asti. Thus the Company’s present framework came to being.
