Gaudio - Bricco MondalinoThe Farm The vineyards cover 18 ha and are in high positions and well exposed to sunlight. The ground is white, limestone, consisting of marine sediments rich in fossil shells. The Gaudio family owns 18 ha of vineyards located in high positions with excellent exposure to sunlight. The limestone soil is ideal for growing vines which give high quality grape because of its mineral elements richness. Tradition The Gaudio family has produced wines in Vignale Monferrato for generations and has always vinified its grape production. Originally, the resulting wine was sold in bulk through buyers, distributors and directly from the winery. The turning point came in 1973 when Amilcare Gaudio built a new and well-equipped cellar. After this the wine has been sold only in bottles to customers such as wine bars, restaurants, importers and directly to customers. The cellar The position of the winery is described as “Bricco” in Italian which means “ top of the hill”. From the panoramic terrace you can enjoy a wonderful view over the hills and villages of Monferrato to the Alps in the north-west (Monviso, Monte Rosa, Cervino). The cellar is well equipped with temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to ensure optimum vinification and wine storage conditions, as well as French oak barrels for aging. The cellar-door Gaudio family has been one of the first wineries in Monferrato with a tasting room. The first one has been a tiny and rustic room with a capacity up to 12 people. From January 2012, beside the old room, has been realized a new wine tasting room. Equipped of a video projector, a bar and facing on the barrels, this room has been set for wine tastings and conferences of about 60 people. Mauro, Gabriella and Beatrice go on explaining with love their products, and showing the beauty of their region.. During spring and summer, the tastings can be organized on the winery's terrace, with a nice view on the vineyards and on the village of Vignale.
