Cascina Castlet

Overview

An estate is initially a project. And a project is a dream which gradually takes shape, first of all on paper, then on the land and finally, for us, in our wine.

Cascina Castlet’s two main aims are respect for nature, and alignment with technological progress. Through important investments in land, top of the line equipment and, above all, research, this vineyard has now expanded to over 28 hectares of vines in Costiglione d’Asti.

Although the company is mainly focus on the land and the local grape varieties like the Barbera, Moscato, Uvalino and Nebbiol, Cascina Castlet also specializes in Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, a variety introduced in Costigliole by Marquis Fillippo Asinari of San Marzano in the 18th century.

Cascina Castlet has belonged to the Borio family for generations. Mariuccia, its present owner, inherited it from her father in 1970. For years, her vision and brave decisions with regards to marketing have helped to sculpt the company’s trademark originality, and give its signature wines their unique names and stories—wines like the Passum, Policalpo, Avié, Litina, Goj, Ataj and Uceline. Produced with the utmost respect for ethics and culture, each wine is a love letter to those who strive to protect and cherish the environment.

Combining ancient traditions with new technology, the farmhouse’s old stone walls house large 34 hectolitre oak barrels, opposite the yard of a newer cellar where the wine is aged in modern steel barrels, next to the automated bottling line. It is within this carefully controlled environment their finest grapes are stored, destined to become Barbera Passum, Moscato Avié and that rarest, the Uvalino, a wine served only to a select clientele and during private celebrations.
