Lower Langa

Cascina Sòt

Farm in Monforte d’Alba

Cascina Sòt is the name of this ancient Langa farmhouse, which according to some sources dates back to over 400 years ago.

Finely restored, with an elegant tasting room, it is now home to the Winery that bears the same name, run by the Sanso family.

Maurizio, the young owner, assisted by his parents Silvana and Leonardo and by his sister Lorena, will welcome you to the company, for a visit and a guided tasting session.

Barolo DOCG, Barbera d’Alba DOC superior, Dolcetto DOC are the wines for which the company “is worth the trip”, recommended by the young producer who carries on the family traditions.

The Winery

You’ll find us in the main production area of Barolo DOCG. Cascina Sòt is located in a panoramic and secluded area, along the road from Barolo to Monforte d’Alba.

Maurizio’s grandparents were already working here as sharecroppers. After purchasing the farmhouse, wine-making became the main objective, thus Cascina Sòt took on its present identity.

The Winery is situated in a unique setting and allows visitors to follow the entire wine-making process.

Natural resources, such as the winter cold and the low water temperature found in an ancient well, are taken advantage of as much as possible for maintaining the right temperature during the the wine-making process.

Projected towards the future

Producing their own name labels began in 2008, when Maurizio took on the wine-making trade. Barbera Superiore and Dolcetto arrived in 2016. 2018 will be the year of the Nas-cetta and 2019 will be the year of the Barolo Bricco San Pietro.

In the vineyard

The vineyards are located amongst the Farmstead’s adjacent lands, between the hills of Bricco San Pietro and San Giovanni, with a variable exposure ranging from South/South-West and South/South-East. The soil is clayey-calcareous.

Respect for the vineyard and the environment is reflected in the targeted use of pesticides and grassing between and under the rows.
