GeMiTo cellars: UVA MATRIS
The estate is located in Sala Monferrato and is located on the top of a gentle hill at about 264 meters above sea level, and has 4 hectares of vineyards.
The calcareous-marly soil, white, light gray or beige, rich in calcium carbonate, combined with the optimal exposures of our vineyards and low production yields, ensure optimal conditions for the production of wines of the highest quality.
Among landscapes full of charm, which host quality viticulture and enology, we entrust our native vines to the best Piedmontese peasant tradition.
Monferrato is a historical-geographical region of Piedmont that extends in the provinces of Alessandria and Asti, from the Po river to the Ligurian Apennines. Our estate, Cascina San Pietro, is located in the lower Monferrato, a hilly area which, thanks to the climate influenced by both the presence of the Alps and the sea, represents an ideal area for growing vines.
In fact, the landscape represents a mixture of hills and plains, which also leave many spaces even in wild areas, meadows and woods. These territorial peculiarities mean that, according to the seasons, the landscape assumes the most varied shades of colors, from the white of the slopes covered with snow in winter, to the first pale green and gradually more intense, dotted with chromatic spots of the houses and crops , to the golden reds and yellows of the autumn vineyards.
