Moscato d’Asti DOCG – Santo Stefano –
Moscato d’Asti DOCG Beppe Marino
- A long tradition unites Beppe Marino and his family to hillside vineyards and the calm attraction of the wine cellar. The roots have a firm hold in wine lands located between the Langhe and Monferrato districts of Piedmont, at Santo Stefano Belbo.
Evidence of these roots is found in the form of the large farmhouse, the vineyards and a small but technically remarkable winery: all passionately and enthusiastically run by Beppe Marino, his wife Rosalba and their son Maurizio, to create the real stars of the winery: the wines.
- The company is run at artisan level to offer customers wines produced exclusively from estate-owned grapes.
The Marino family cultivates vines high (400 metres above sea level) on the hills of Santo Stefano Belbo, Mango d’Alba and Castelnuovo Calcea, where it owns 12 hectares of vineyards in Valdivilla, Marini, Riforno and Momparone, areas renowned for the cultivation of grapes.
Santo Stefano, as the village where Beppe and Rosalba have raised their family and their farm, a small gemstone in the Langhe built over the river Belbo and birthplace of Cesare Pavese, great Italian writer of the twentieth century.
