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’.
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.
