What to Expect
A series of underground passageways and corridors that date back to the end of the 1800s composes the Coppo Cellars. Known as the "Underground Cathedrals" for its spectacular beauty, uniqueness, and historical authenticity, the cellars were recognized by UNESCO in 2014 as a World Heritage Site. By choosing this tour, you can personalize your visit and wine tasting for an exclusive and unique experience. At the end of the guided visit through the underground cellars, the wine tasting will take place in a specially reserved room with the support of multimedia content (photos, videos, virtual tours of the vineyards).
For those who love fine wines, a tour has been created that concludes with a tasting of 3 Riserva wines, the most prestigious of the winery, and the Moncalvina Moscato d’Asti “Canelli.” Different characteristics of the soils using samples from the land will be illustrated such as how the mineral rich composition is reflected in the elegance and longevity of the wines. Discover the historical reasons for why the Canelli is renowned as the birthplace and capital of Italian Spumante in the world. Learn the differences between the two principle processes of sparkling wine (Charmat and Metodo Classico), the processing stages of making a Spumante Metodo Classico, and the importance of fermenting yeast action during the long period of aging in the bottle.
Learn about the story of Chardonnay and the white Piedmontese varieties that are rare and lesser known. Know the reasons for their arrival in the beginning of the 19th century from several “Franzesi” varieties, as they were called then, that arrived in the territory. You will learn that the history of Barbera is also the history of a difficult and poor period. During that long ago past, the variety’s flexibility in cultivation plus its generous productivity helped make Barbera extremely popular and widespread, though without real appreciation for its potential. Thanks to these producers, Barbera is now firmly redeemed, able to demonstrate its elegance and great potential. The visit lasts for about two hours and concludes with a wine tasting with local delicacies.
