Cascina San Cristoforo is fortunate to be situated in one of the best locations in the region. The winery is located in the municipality of Neive, in the heart of the Barbaresco wine production region. San Cristoforo and Gallina are our two hills, and they benefit from excellent exposure, quality of earth, and superb microclimates. These elements form the foundation that we strive to reproduce in our wines as exemplifying the terroir of Barbaresco.
Started in 1997, the winery over the last several years has begun to commercialize its products in earnest, after the restructuring of the vineyard through the addition of new Nebbiolo vines in 1999 and 2000 and the complete modernization of its cellar operations. Currently the winery has about 1.3 hectares (3.5 acres) of vines from which it produces between 8,000 to 10,000 bottles per year of mostly Barbaresco DOCG and Dolcetto d’Alba DOC, as well as a smaller production of Langhe Nebbiolo DOC.
