Vinchio – Vaglio Serra

December 16, 2011 by Christine No Comments »

Vinchio Vaglio Serra is a “Vinegrowers Association” located near Asti in the town of Vinchio. Far from your typical “social winery,” Vinchio Vaglio Serra controls all aspects of the production process from vine to bottle.

Their wines have garnered the highest possible praise from Gambero Rosso, and for good reason. The Barbera grape thrives in the hills of Monferrato, and Vinchio Vaglio Serra truly knows Barbera.

The many growers associated with Vinchio Vaglio Serra have a long history with the cantina. Founded in 1959, the cantina has dedicated itself to promoting the illustrious, if often under-rated Barbera grape. Although they produce many other wines, Barbera is clearly the focus at this modern winery. All of the members of the winery are committed to working with a low environmental impact, reducing the use of pesticides.

The focus on quality in the vineyard is immediately recognisable when opening a bottle, and affirmed when visiting the vineyards surrounding the town of Vinchio. A more peaceful setting cannot be imagined, with the surrounding hills covered in vines, primarily Barbera.

But Vinchio Vaglio Serra is not limited toBarbera.  Their Barolo and Barbaresco are excellent representations of Nebbiolo, and you can also try their Moscato and Brachetto.

Vinchio – Vaglio Serra wines have won awards across the world.

In our shop you can buy La Romantica  2010 – a cabernet merlot mix which won a bronze medal in the Korean wine challenge.

Or if you prefer Barbera, we have I Tre Vescovi 2009 which was awarded a silver medal in the international wine challenge 2011, a bronze medal in Decanter WWA 2011 and silver (best in class) in IWSC 2011.

Sei Vigne Insynthesis has won Gold medals from Decanter and from ISWC as well as 2 red glasses from Gambero Rosso. This isn’t on the website but is available upon request.

These wines and more are available from our on line shop at www.atasteofitaly.ie
