Cascina Zerbetta

Italy · Piedmont · Monferatto

Paolo Antonio Malfatti and AnnaMaria Zerbetta started the winery Cascina Zerbetta in 1998, located in Monferrato. They came to this after working in a few other Italien wineries. The main goal was to produce great wine, affordable to all, relying on natural production and agricultural methods. Barbera, Teroldego, Cabernet Sauvignon, Müller-Thurgau, and Sauvignon Blanc now grow organically and biodynamically, side by side in the rich calcareous clay-based soils, some 200 meters above sea level.

Natural yeasts kick start fermentations after cool macerations and gentle extractions. Sulfites are kept low. Both stainless steel and older oak barrels are used. Paolo describes it better as guidance, rather than winemaking by manipulation.
