Ferraris Agricola

The philosophy that has always accompanied my work is to be able to combine respect for nature, tradition and technology in order to always obtain the best possible result, investing time (and not only) in the search for the best"

The history of the Ferraris Agricola winery began when great-grandfather Luigi emigrated to America and found gold during the "Golden rush" in California. Thanks to his income, great-grandmother Teresa, who had remained in Italy, had the opportunity to make his dreams come true. In 1921 she bought the house, in Castagnole Monferrato, in Via al Castello, home of the first Ferraris winery. Two years later, grandfather Martino bought the "Casot", a rural farmhouse in the middle of a 40,000 square meter plot where today one of the most representative vineyards of the company stands. However, the production of wine remained a passion and never a job. Thus, for decades, the grapes were given to the town's Social Cooperative.
