The news appeared in the Sole24Ore yesterday honours the Oltrepò Pavese:Prime Alture Wine Resort has been ranked among the first 10 Wine Resorts in Italy!
Wine Princess took part in the harvesting of the Pinot Noir and had the chance to taste the wines of this amazing property in Casteggio.
The magic of grape harvesting…
… is something you HAVE TO TRY once in your life!
When the harvest starts, you can see the joy on the faces of those who are reaping the fruits of hard work and a long time spent controlling the plants growth. It’s always a miracle of nature, supported by the love of man …
Then the pressing and the final product, the result of the producer’s skills and passion. Energy and love of the land, fantasy and care for the customer and his taste.
The Prime Alture project still seemed impossible some years ago. Now, it is one of the best examples of hospitality in the Oltrepò wine region.
Wine Princess suggests
Wine Princess has tasted IO PER TE, Blanc de Noir (made from Pinot Noir) Metodo Classico, a Brut sparkling wine. The vines average age is 22 years and, as you see in the pictures, the grapes are collected using the traditional hand picking method and placed in wooden boxes.
Who should drink it: Everyone! Nicely fresh and easy to drink, even those who don’t particularly like wine will appreciate it…
When to drink it: All year long! It’s a fine sparkling wine with a pleasant and persistent creamy texture.
A wonderful opportunity: A quick tour in the Oltrepò region to visit the Wine Resort in Casteggio and taste a romantic sunset on the vineyards, and a glass of this amazing wine!
God save Oltrepò!
