About the Winery:
The Scarpa winery, founded in 1854 at the behest of the Venetian migrant Antonio Scarpa, covers part of the history of wine-growing Piedmont, in particular of Monferrato. The long fil rouge of the company, however, is linked to a production philosophy rather than to its territory, thanks to the intervention of Mario Pesce, a winemaker from Nizza.

At Scarpa, red wine is the king, born in the footsteps of the ancient knowledge of Burgundy. Trained in Burgundy, Mario began his viticultural journey by honing his craft in important fundamentals such as low production yields, long macerations and fermentations, refinements in large wooden barrels and the art of long bottle ageing. And this was naturally translated into his work in Monferrato.

The modern Scarpa winery is credited to Mario who transformed a small wine cellar and converted it into a world-renowned winery with state-of-the-art facilities. Respect for the land, relentless pursuit of quality, and patient bottle ageing make Scarpa what it is today.
