An outstanding property in a beautiful position overlooking a Monferrato town that dates back to the early 1200s. The castle was built in the 18th century but was fully restored and expanded in 2000 by the current owners, who have owned the property since the 1970s.
There are 4 buildings. The main building has 4 levels with kitchen, dining room, study, wine cellar, 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Everything is in good order and in an excellent state of repair.
The second building has a wine cellar and above has 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. This is perfect guest accommodation. The rooms are spacious with high ceilings.
The third building has a private ‘Trattoria’ style dining room and a large wine cellar for wine production - all the wine making equipment can be included in the sale. On the roof is a large terrace with beautiful views over the town, hills and Alps.
The fourth building is a storeroom for garden machines and a garage for cars and agricultural machines. A tractor is included in the sale and all the equipment necessary for caring for the land and property.
The land is divided into section. The largest part is a walnut orchard. Above this is a large woodland that is designed purposely to encourage the growth of white truffles. Over the years to owners have found many. The current owners would be willing to visit with their trained dog in the right season or the new owners can arrange for local hunters to explore the land and share the finds. Although a large part of the land is allocated for vineyards the owners found only the higher parts worth working so currently there are two a Barbera vineyards and a Nebbiolo but these could be expanded. The vines produce very high quality wines. Currently, 30,000 sqm is used to grow vines.
Another part of the land is a large area of varies types of fruit trees including - apple, peach, prune, cherry and pear. A section closer to the building is a small field.
By the swimming pool there are fig and olive trees. The climate is excellent, making it possible for these varieties to grow.
The castle is located on a high hill with views of the Alps, town and surrounding hills. Access is excellent. Alba can be reached in 35 mins, Asti is only 25 mins. Malpensa airport is 130km and the coast 80km.
Within 60km is a golf course, shopping outlet, the spa town of Acqui Terme and the Barolo wine area.
