Alta Langa

The Alta Langa area once had numerous vineyards on the sunniest slopes of its hills. The advent of phylloxera and the economic difficulties of the post-war period led to viticulture being sacrificed in favour of coriculture, hazelnut cultivation, fields and pastures. However, following a growing interest in white wines and sparkling wines, recently there has been a return to this wild and impervious land. For the Pecchenino family, Alta Langa represents the most recent investment. In the municipality of Bossolasco, in the locality of Pezzea, there are 7 hectares of property and a farmhouse, purchased in 2010. Here, given the altitude (700 m above sea level) and the calcareous soil, pinot noir, chardonnay and riesling find their maximum expression.
