Cascina Garitina farm

Cascina Garitina, in Castel Boglione – in the heart of Monferrato (AT) – was founded in 1900 as a family-run winery, now managed by its fourth-generation owner, Gianluca Morino.

The name of the company comes from the great-grandmother Margherita whose diminutive “Margheritina” becomes “Garitina” in the local dialect.
The activity of this winery is mainly focused on the enhancement of Barbera, namely the main vine of the company benefiting from the best exposure. In particular, the oldest vineyards (planted in 1939, 1951, and 1969) are dedicated to the production of Nizza wine, a type of Barbera with specific and strict techniques, only on the hills of the 18 municipalities around Nizza Monferrato, a particularly suitable area and the very birthplace of this wine.

The vineyards cover about 64 acres, planted with Barbera, Brachetto, Dolcetto, Pinot Nero, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.

Over the years, Giancluca Morino has constantly improved the management of the vineyard, trying to combine past experiences with modern production techniques: his endeavour has led to high-quality grapes and excellent wines. Cultivation and production are, in fact, carried out with the least possible impact on the environment, mimicking the very natural growth mechanisms and rhythms of nature (grassy rows, little mowings, thorough research on the local weather and its positive effects, etc.).

Cascina Garitina uses screw caps on all the bottles, a sensible choice which avoids defective cork and contributes to dramatically reduce the stress on cork oak forests.
