For a truly suggestive tasting experience, we invite you to the Bel Sit wine tasting on the ancient tower of Castagnole delle Lanze: a panoramic point from where you can admire the Langhe and Monferrato and stretch your gaze as far as the Alps. You can enjoy our products before a marvellous view and you will have the chance to discover the history of the village and its most symbolic building.
The tower of Castagnole, in fact, is located in the highest part of the old village and dates back to 1880. It was built at the behest of Count Paolo Ballada of Saint Robert, who used it as a watchtower and observatory, but also as a shelter for his collection of plants and insects. Count Ballada was a great lover of entomology and botany, but also a distinguished scholar of military technology. When he moved to Turin in 1884, he left the tower and the surrounding land to the Municipality of Castagnole, which fifty years later inaugurated the Parco della Rimembranza (Remembrance Park) on that site, dedicated to the fallen soldiers of the First World War.
During the tasting you will be able to try our rosé wine 25/9, Barbera d’Asti DOCG La Turna, Barbera d’Asti Superiore DOCG Cunsej and our Moscato d’Asti DOCG. The glasses will be accompanied by a selection of local products provided by small producers of the area: cured meats, breadsticks, hazelnut cake and much more.
The wine tasting along with the visit to the tower is organised in collaboration with the Municipality of Castagnole delle Lanze. Contact us to find out the available dates and arrange your participation. We look forward to seeing you.
