Cascina del Melo is a biodynamic winery set in the gentle hills of Piedmont, the northern Italian wine region. The Piedmont region produces both high quality red and white wines. In 2003 Giorgio Rossi Cairo bought this stunning 110 hectare estate. Only about a fifth of it is Cortese and Barbera vineyards, the rest being fields and woodland like oak, chestnut, elderflower and acacia.  Cascina del Melo is now run by Caterina Rossi Cairo and her English husband Tom Dean who live on the estate with their young children. The organic Barbera grapes are handpicked, with fermentation on their own lees with skin contact. In your glass this wine is ruby red in colour with purple hints. The nose is floral with aromas reminiscent of rose petal and geranium leaves. The mouthfeel is full, with complex red and black fruit characteristics and a pleasant acidity. Pair with: grilled meats, roasts and medium aged cheese. We also sell Cascina del Melo’s Gavi DOC 18’.

  • Discounts prices are available to all active subscribers and wine club members. Simply purchase a monthly wine subscription or join the wine club and the discounted prices are applied automatically to all future orders.

  • In the monthly wine subscription, you receive a monthly delivery of wines curated by our sommeliers, based on the type preference you select (red wine, white wine or both). This helps subscribers to discover new styles and varieties, which you wouldn’t normally come across or buy. Wine club members pay a selected amount into their wine club account every month. We don’t deliver any wine to them until they place an order for the specific wines they chose using their account balance. In short, the subscription product is for wine drinkers wanting to discover new wines and are happy for us to chose for them where the wine club is for those who know what they like and want to have control over which wines they receive. Both monthly subscriber and wine club members receive discounted prices on all orders.

  • We endeavour to source wines from small family-operated vineyards, who are either certified organic, bio-dynamic, or working towards this. All certified organic wines will be labelled as such, in our online store. Currently, 85% of the wines we sell are certified organic so there plenty to choose from. If you head to the menu on the website select Wine Method / Organic Wine and that will show you all the wine in our shop which is certified organic.

  • There are multiple options for delivery. The cheapest option is our 3 working day delivery service which is £4.95. DPD is our preferred delivery partner who will provide you with a live tracking link and delivery window once the item/s have been collected from our warehouse.
