The company is located in Castiglione Tinella, more precisely in the small hamlet of San Martino.
The area is particularly suited to the cultivation of Moscato, which is the almost absolute protagonist of the company’s production.
The history of the Matteo Soria farm began in 1800, when Matteo’s great-grandfather began to cultivate white Moscato, Dolcetto and Barbera and produce bulk wine.
From that moment, his passion was handed down from father to son, in a succession of changes and choices aimed at modernizing the winery and increasing its production.
With the passage of time and a lot of experience, around the 90s, the Sorias decided to dedicate all their efforts to the cultivation and production of Moscato.
In fact, the land of the property’s hills is predominantly sandy and gives the grape, and wine, the typical musky aroma that is perceivable in the nose from the first taste.
Today the winery is run by Matteo, the youngest of the family, and by his father Sergio.
Each has its own role: Matteo takes care of the wine-making processes, Sergio takes care of the forty hectares of vineyards that surround the company.
With Matteo and Sergio, new technologies have arrived, indispensable for making the best grapes and obtaining the best quality.
The wines produced on the farm in greater quantities are Moscato d’Asti DOCG and Asti DOCG Extra Dry, the two symbolic denominations of the area.
In addition, there is a small production of Brut Cuvée Metodo Classico based on 100% Pinot Nero grapes, worked with the champenoise method, and one of Asti Dolce DOCG, made with moscato grapes.
A targeted choice
A selected and quality-conscious production of only four company labels: Moscato d’Asti DOCG, Asti DOCG Extra Dry, Brut Cuvée Metodo Classico and Asti Dolce DOCG.
Moscato d’Asti is the most produced wine and its musky scent is characteristic of the terroir from which it comes.
The taste, delicate and intense, recalls white flowers and fruits, but you can also find hints of sage, lemon and orange blossom.
