Cascina San Michele Winery by Winemaker Marco Minnuci

During my 2023 Summer visit to Piemonte Italy with One on The Hill I had the pleasure of meeting Winemaker Marco Minnuci of Cascina San Michele Winery. Cascina San Michele Winery is a beautiful winery located in the Langhe Valley. Marco is yet another up-and-coming winemaker in Italy who has been making wine since 2010 in Costigliole. He opened the farm Cascina San Michele in 2015 after meeting his partners and the rest is history. A strictly organic approach is what they strive to achieve. This means they don’t use chemical fertilizers, herbicides, or other products that could damage the vines. It is definitely worth a visit!

Nestled within a picturesque estate, Cascina San Michele Winery offers an inviting ambiance, particularly in its lower-level tasting room, that enhances the enjoyment of some of Piemonte’s most exquisite wines. My visit here was a highlight of my trip, not just for the wines but also due to the winemaker, Marco. His infectious enthusiasm and entertaining nature made the experience not only enjoyable and fun but also profoundly insightful.

They have fantastically named wines such as Primevr (wines facing different slopes), Briccone (grapes that come from only one hill, Briccone), and Collarosa (Rose wine made with Piedmontese Bonarda). Their winery is perfectly nostalgic and exactly what you would think of when you think of Italy.

The wines were paired with lunch which was delightful. Each of these wines was an amazing expression of a unique grape and I enjoyed very much. Any Italian Winelovers must get to know these incredible wines and Winemaker Marco.
