About
Centovigne, Castello di Castellengo

The roots of Centovigne date back to 1682, when the first vats of wine were produced at the Castle of Castellengo. With this deep knowledge of history, owners Danielle, Alessandro and Magda—also filling the role of winemaker and viticulturists—implement a winemaking style with a holistic approach of targeted interventions that maintain the health of high-acidity soils. The goal is to encourage the growth of native vegetation cover and foster the growth of biodiversity in the soils. 

Introducing Centovigne, Castello di Castellengo

A judicial report from September 28th, 1748 on the feudal estate of Castellengo called the Cabreo was retrieved by experts, and were have been able to determine the extent of the vineyards between the castles of Castellengo and Mottalciata and the very systems of cultivation utilized by the farmers. More recently, Centovigne also uncovered documents of six gold medal diplomas that Spanna wines (Nebbiolo) from Castellengo received between 1933 and 1938.

The tradition of Azienda Vitivinicola Centovigne is understood to guide the transfer of knowledge from one generation to the next and has fundamentally shaped the Centovigne team’s approach to the Earth, its fruits, and winemaking. This generational exchange brings historic practices into the modern era, and the generations that receive these practices contribute new knowledge.

The castle walls of Castello di Castellengo continue to welcome new generations of vintners as a guarantee of the continuity of quality Nebbiolo in the north of Piemonte. The history of the site has shaped the passion of the winemakers as it embraces the unique wealth of the land. The old vines of the area grow among archaeological sites and artifacts buried in the marine sands, gravely and sandy clay soils. And the cellars of the castle—like many others in the area—have housed wine cellars for centuries.

These practices have preserved the unique flavor and irresistible elegance and minerality of the wines of Centovigne and the Castle of Castellengo.
