Ceretto 'I Vignaioli di S. Stefano' Moscato d'Asti DOCG, Piedmont, Italy

Ceretto I Vignaioli di S. Stefano Moscato d'Asti DOCG 2020

When Tradition Marries Innovation

In the heart of Piedmont, Italy, nestled within Santo Stefano Belbo's serene landscapes, lies a revival and dedication story. 1976 marked the inception of a movement led by visionary winemakers and the Ceretto brothers, seeking to infuse quality into the overly commercialized Moscato wine. Their fellowship birthed I Vignaioli di Santo Stefano, a testament to the power of shared dreams and the relentless pursuit of excellence. This narrative isn't just about wine; it's a legacy intertwined with the ethos of the land and the spirit of Cesare Pavese, echoing through the Moscato d'Asti DOCG 2020.
