Tenimenti Ca Bianca
“Casa Vinicola Ca’ Bianca” opened its doors in 1952 in the Alessandria area of Alto Monferrato, now part of the small municipality of Alice Bel Colle, a stone’s throw from Acqui Terme. The name of the winery is inspired by the local name of this area “al ca’ bianche”.
It is based in Cascina Spagna, a farm acquired in the 1980s, whose origins are rooted in history, when the Spanish were at war with France and the Republic of Venice in the 1620s.
Its position on a high hill makes it a strategic place, offering an overview to anyone traveling across the entire valley below. In August 1997, the estate grew to include the Cascina Polsino farm of around 9 hectares with vines, in one parcel of valuable terrain within the estate.
Tenimenti Ca’ Bianca occupies an area of more than 24 hectares in one plot, located around the cellars, and the central viewpoint offers a stunning view. The lands around the estate are intended specifically for growing vineyards. They were formed 13 million years ago, during the Miocene period, on the sandy bottom of a fairly shallow ancient sea. The estate grows a selection of Dolcetto, Gavi, Moscato and Brachetto, as well as three different types of Barbera, a local variety that takes the DOC Barbera d’Asti.
