Cascina Gilli is located in Castelnuovo Don Bosco on the Monferrato Asti wine route called Terra dei Santi (“Land of Saints”).
In addition to the places where Saint Don Bosco was born, within a few kilometers, it is possible to reach unique places of historical and naturalistic interest: from the Romanesque Architecture Churches jewels to the lavender fields, trekking routes among the vineyards, Castles and some of the most beautiful medieval villages of Italy.
The company welcomes visitors all year round for wine tours and custom made tastings; guests are introduced to an overview of Cascina Gilli’s winemaking history and philosophy, an activity aimed to enhance through research and accurate selection, the indigenous varieties. Pleasantly seated in the courtyard or in the tasting room overlooking the vineyards, it is possible to be fascinated by a wine tasting session, experiencing the thrill of tasting the result of a meticulous work, right there where it was produced, immersed in one of the most charming panoramic point of Monferrato.
At Cascina Gilli one can still breathe the charme and authenticity which still characterize this corner of Piedmont. The convivial simplicity of these lands fascinates visitors from all over the world every year, ever more searching of a true experience, made of landscapes, of small realities where life flows as it once was and of people, who still believe in the values of what earth can offer, so they just can’t wait to tell people about it. This exactly is what our land represents for us.
