“A vineyard that climbs on the back of a hill up to walk in the sky, is a familiar sight, yet the curtains of the simple and deep rows regard a magic door.
Under the vines the red soil is broken up, the leaves hide treasures, and beyond the leaves there is the sky. All this is familiar and remote, childish to put it short, but shakes everytime, almost like a world.”
Cesare Pavese wrote these words; he’s born in the village of Santo Stefano Belbo, province of Cuneo, close to Asti’ zone wich he shares old vine’ tradition. Now, like time ago, on the Barbera d’Asti hills close to the Cantina Sociale Barbera dei Sei Castelli, is like this: vineyard is always an hard job, but also party, magic and partnership never stopped by winegrowers nature’ lovers, that, like everytime, asks respect for jewels and unrepeatable fruits.
