A Fabulous “Barbera” wine

From Monferrato, a rural land of ancient vineyards and new wines

  • On top of the Monsengo hill, amidst the Lombard lands of Mombello Monferrato

The estate, the Lombards and an old “black” wine

Tenuta Mezzotero, nestled in the ancient Lombard lands of the Monferrato, is a project to save the receding vineyards besieged by advancing woods. Once again bringing their grapes back to life and turning them into the famous Barbera wine. And not just any Barbera, but Nero di Monsengo.

We are located at Mombello Monferrato, Val Cerrina, 15km west of Casale Monferrato, a strategic crossroad a few miles away from four Piedmont provinces: Alessandria, Asti, Torino and Vercelli, all replete with culture and traditions, especially culinary ones. The farmhouse sits near the vineyard landscape of Langhe-Roero and Monferrato, a UNESCO’s world heritage site, and is close to true “hidden gems” like the Sacro Monte di Crea, a stunning “Way of the cross” cum catholic sanctuary nestled amidst the Monferrato hills (also listed in the UNESCO world heritage sites).

The Project’s headquarters is the XIX century Cascina Gian Pietro farmhouse, lying atop the Monsengo hill. In 2007 the current owners, persuaded by its treasure of beauty and tradition, bought the farmhouse and surrounding fields to restore them to their grape growing vocation.
