About the winery

With 400 hectares on a single body of land, including 80 hectares planted with vines, 12 farmsteads, an historic village and an inn, Travaglino is a world of emotions, where vines, men and landscape reveal the complexity and beauty of an area rich in history, traditions and an innate propensity for winegrowing. The nineteenth century winegrowing estate was built on the foundations of a thirteen century monastery; today Travaglino is not only an outstanding cellar but also a wine travel destination. Being the oldest winery in the Oltrepò Pavese, Travaglino today cultivates more than 80 hectares of vineyards set on the green hills of unspoilt beauty in between Milan and Portofino. A story of traditions, cutting-edge practices and passion for winegrowing, where five generations have continued believing in the potential of this area, the Italian home of Pinot Noir and Riesling. The little village of Calvignano is a pearl of beauty and one of the most authentic expressions of Italianity.

History & Geography

1111 - Johannis de Travalino The first certain mention of the Estate dates to 18 November 1111. The last will and testament of the priest Gisulfo cites one Johannis de Travalino, from whom the place where the ancient monastery stood takes its name. 2013 - The fifth generation First Cristina and then Alessandro Cerri Comi, Vincenzo’s grandchildren, join the company. Focus of attention is the quality of the wines produced, and on rationalizing the winery’s work, which is concentrated on the Estate’s two main varieties: Pinot Noir, in its innumerable nuances, and Riesling Renano. A new team of professionals is formed, made up of consultant oenologist Donato Lanati, supported by the Enosis research centre, and winemaker Achille Bergami.
