Monferrato

Macario Giovanna

Wine Producer in Nizza Monferrato

Tradition, passion and dedication, combined with a generous land such as the Monferrato, can only turn into a high quality wine product.

And it is precisely the constant search for quality and the strong bond with the territory of origin that characterizes the work of the master wine-makers of this business in Nizza Monferrato.

Today the winery is located in an area with a lively food and wine context which is also part of the UNESCO heritage, about a kilometer from where its history started almost a hundred years ago.

In 1920 Giovanni Macario inherited from his father some ha of vineyard in the Coste del Sole region of Castel Boglione.

In the following years he decided to expand the business by buying other land and thus giving life to his own winery.

The production back then was of about 2 ha of vineyard and was mainly focused on the traditional vines of Monferrato: Barbera, Freisa and Moscato.

81 years later the winery has the name of the founder’s niece and current owner Giovanna Macario, counting 50 hectares of vines such as Grignolino, Dolcetto, Cortese, Chardonnay and Brachetto.

The Wines

The wines produced are those that have always been cultivated in this part of Piedmont.

Those that have made the history of this wine region: reds like Barbera, Dolcetto, Grignolino, Freisa, but also dessert wines like Brachetto and Moscato.

Each of the wines is born from the predilection for the traditional notes of the vine, rather than for the new trends in taste; when wood comes into play, it is carefully used to soften wines without attacking or distorting the aromas and flavors of the grapes of origin.
