Cantina Fontechiara

Fontechiara, a wine to taste and a reality to discover!

About the winery
Fontechiara produces Colline Novaresi D.O.C. wines such as Nebbiolo, Vespolina and Rosato. We are located in the North-East part of Piedmont, in an area called Alto Piemonte which is building a strong reputation for producing high quality wines. Our wines are made from organically grown indigenous grapes in a traditional way and are single variety vinificated. We do not add any chemical or animal derived ingredient to our wines and this, added to the drastic selection of the grapes and a totally natural process of clarification and filtration, certainly makes the quality of our products (vegan certification). We organise guided visit of the cellar during that will be illustrated the vineyard-growing methods and technical wine-making and a following wine tasting together with cold cuts, cheese and other typical territory products, all green and home-made, rich and various that can replace a lunch!

History & Geography
When the whole world had its eyes and mind pointed towards the new millennium, our gaze was turned to the past in memory of our origins and our traditions. After a working parenthesis that had turned us away, we therefore decided to return to trample that land to take possession of our country tradition with pride. The old huts are restored, the hill cleaned up and everything returns to its original characteristics. Even the ancient spring, where the animals were drunk and the farmers quenched their thirst, is traced thanks to the help of a skilled diviner and his willow wood which indicate to the augers the exact place to dig. As a sign of destiny, water flows from the earth, abundant and pure, to revive the hill and the old company. Hence also the choice of the name "Fontechiara" a tribute to the newfound source and to Chiara, the landlady, a newly found peasant. We are at about 15 minutes from Maggiore and Orta Lakes, at about 1 hour from Milan and just over an hour from Turin.
