Cascina Gilli is located on the outskirts of Castelnuovo Don Bosco on the “strada del vino” of the Monferrato Astigiano area (of the province of Asti), also known as the “Terra dei Santi” (land of the saints).
In addition to the places where Don Bosco lived and worked, and at a distance of a few kilometres from Cascina Gilli, you can visit places of historical significance and of natural splendour; jewels of Romaneque architecture, fields of lavender and paths to trek through vineyards, past castles and through medieval villages, amoung the most beautiful in Northern Italy.
Cascina Gilli welcomes winelovers and curious travellers all year round for wine tastings; guests will be introduced to the history of the various grapes, to the intense activity of research and production of the indigenous varieties of grapes.
Let yourself go, be seated pleasantly in the courtyard or overlooking the vineyards and let yourself be fascinated by taste of the various wines of Cascina Gilli.
You can still experience the old-fashioned charm and the authenticity of this part of the Piedmont. Visitors from all over have been fascinated by the simplicity of life in these parts; similarly those in search of a unique experience, or thoses charmed by the land itself or by the small realities of life of former times. All this represents “our Monferrato”.
