Our History

The Casa Nova farm was founded way back in 1924. Then, our grandfather, Prati Ermenegildo, bought some of the best lands of (omonima frazione), reuniting them in a single fund and, built the house, he settled there with his family. Ermenegildo immediately senses the strong vocation, of these soils, to the cultivation of vines and, as a hard worker, after a laborious work with the spade and with the plow pulled by the oxen, he implanted, with the help of his children, the vineyards of Brola and Plana followed in a second moment from that of the Mulino. From these vineyards, in fact, you harvest a Bonarda and a Barbera that, pigiated, turn into a wine up, cheerful, rich in scents. Even then, some of these grapes were squeezed together, obtaining an equally characteristic, unique product: the Gutturnio. The tradition of winemaker continues with Ernesto planting, together with his children, the vineyards of Surba and Prondavalle, where an excellent Ortrugo and a fragrant Malvasia are collected. In the 1980s, the company took on a typically wine-making production address. The old vineyards are renovated, new vineyards are planted and only the method of organic cultivation is adopted.

Our Winery

The Casa Nova farm is situated on the green hills of Val Tidone, one of the characteristic valleys of the Piacentini Hills. The soils are medium dough, with a pebble background and with an excellent exposure to the southwest, immersed in a microclimate ideal for the vine, where, as in the past, precious biological balances remained unchanged. Weeds are controlled exclusively with agronomic systems, pest fight is conducted in strict respect for the environment and soils are fed with natural products. The family management of the company also ensures a continuous control of the vegetative phases of the plant and therefore of agronomic interventions, almost all manual and therefore very selective, such as dry and green pruning, ligament of the thighs, thinning of the grapes and finally the harvest that consists of gradually collecting the most mature grapes to obtain a quality product. In the spring after the harvest, the wine is bottled, ready to be tasted lively and fresh. Some matches are refined for a time in wooden barrels, obtaining quiet wines of excellent quality.
