For centuries, winemaking was carried out in the cellars of the Marchesi Incisa castle. Now, all of our wines are vinified at La Corte Chiusa, our family's beautifully restored estate, in the village of Rocchetta Tanaro. Marchesa Barbara Incisa renovated this family’s one-time farmhouse, built by her grandfather, into a wine-making facility, tasting room and barriquerie. All the renovations were completed between 1991 and 1994. All important phases of winemaking take place here; from de-stemming the grapes, grape pressing and fermenting of the must, to malolactic fermentation, barrel ageing and bottling of the wines.
In collaboration with Dr. Donato Lanati, the brilliant and highly respected Piemontese enologist, each phase of production is carefully controlled to ensure the highest quality.
Renovated with respect to its original architectural characteristics, La Corte Chiusa today is a modern winery, equipped with stainless steel tanks, temperature controlled vats, superior wine storage and French oak barrels. Constant control of the vinification and ageing stages allow for wines of the most impeccable quality.
