A note about our product information
A small historic estate nestling among vineyards of rare beauty located on the panoramic road leading from Gavi to Novi Ligure. Thirty hectares of vineyards blessed by a unique terroir entirely given over to the cultivation of the cortese grapes used to produce Gavi, the great white wine of Piedmont. La Battistina has always been one of the most renowned winegrowing firms of the Gavi area. Located between Gavi and Novi Ligure, where it stands on a hilly crest of exceptional beauty, in 2002 it was acquired by the Gruppo Araldica, which then began to renovate the cellar of the firm’s viticultural heritage with the aim of transforming La Battistina into an estate for the production of prestigious Gavi DOCG wine. Following the acquisition, the vineyards were rationalized and partly planted to vine while, contemporarily, a zoning procedure was implemented to identify the parcels of greater prestige and production quality.
