Cascina del Melo is a biodynamic winery set in the gentle hills of Piedmont’s Gavi wine district; it is producing some truly astonishing 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.

Cortese grapes are handpicked, de-stemmed delicately and pressed to remove the skins. The Gavi undergoes temperature controlled fermentation using indigenous yeasts which takes place in stainless steel tanks. The wine is left on its ‘lees’ for three months imparting flavour and finesse before bottling.

Pair with: fish and vegetable-first courses. Perfect match also for young and medium aged cheese.

We also sell Cascina del Melo’s Barbera DOC 19’.
