- About The Producer
Castello di Uviglie is a small estate located in Monferrato, Piedmont. It is owned by Simone Lupano who, in 1992, re-launched vine cultivation on the property. The Uviglie Castle rises on the hills to the east of Rosignano Monferrato at about 8 km from Casale Monferrato. The Paucaparte di Celle family built it between 1239 and 1271 and in 1491 it passed to the Earls Pico-Gonzaga who started agricultural activities. Today there are 120 hectares of which 25 are planted with vineyards. Castello di Uviglie wines are the result of a great love for the region and its vineyards. Such is its beauty that it is a UNESCO world heritage listed site.
