The story

"My walls are warmed not by the sun of the pale winter but by the vibrations of all the hearts to which I have been able to give moments of happiness."

The Castle

Montecavallo Castle was built by Filiberto Avogadro di Collobiano around 1830, on the remains of a house that had belonged to the family since 1200.

The project, entrusted to the architect Dupuy, represents one of the rare Neo-Gothic expressions found in Piedmont.

The garden and park, designed at the same time as the Castle, is a typical representation of what is known as an 'Italian garden'.

The private chapel, dedicated to St Philip Neri, contains a marble Pietà by Cacciatori, a master sculptor from Carrara.

Perfectly preserved and still a private residence, Castello di Montecavallo is now home to the wine site of the same name and a venue for exclusive private events.

The Vineyards

Tradition, territory, passion

Thanks to the excellent south-east exposure of the land and the particular composition of the soil, since the second half of the 1200s the vineyard has grown luxuriantly, overlooking the city of Biella at 450 metres above sea level.

Cultivated with Nebbiolo and Vespolina grapes, using the Gouyot training method, the vineyards surround the entire property and today represent one of the most important wine-growing realities of the province.

All the vineyards are certified organic, blending in perfectly with the biodiversity of the surrounding woods and historic park.

The Family

For us, wine is a family story.

A passion handed down for centuries and now passed on to Tomaso and Martina Incisa della Rocchetta.

"For us, making wine means above all respecting and preserving what surrounds us and what has been handed down to us. With this in mind, in addition to the organic management of all the vineyards, we implement the care of the woods surrounding the vineyards, as well as supporting beekeeping in the vineyard and the recovery of old vineyards and terraces, with the aim of safeguarding the territory and preserving its identity, history and uniqueness for future generations."
