Brothers Paola and Guid Ghercina follow in the footsteps of their father and grandfathers, representing the fourth generation of winemakers in the family. Cascina Ghercina has been a household name in the Italian wine region of Piedmont for almost 150 years. They want to produce wines for wine lovers who are passionate about Piedmontese wines and who are constantly looking for quality and tradition. Respect for the area, constant dedication to achieving excellence, genuine passion: these are the values inherited from the four generations of producers from which Cascina Ghercina is derived and which are combined every day with the technologies that modernity can offer.

After the manual harvest, which is very strict, the wine ripens for at least twelve months, four of which are in French oak barrels. During this period it gains strength and softness. Cascina Ghercina Barbera d'Alba has in its aroma impressions of black fruit, blueberries, vanilla sticks and some light herbs. The taste is lovely, soft on the tongue and an impressive bouquet of dark black fruit complemented by oak wood, vanilla, light herbs and lavender. This delicious red wine is very suitable for dishes with duck and pork, but also for pasta dishes.
