Vineyard Info

The family history of Susanna Galandrino, winemaker at La Gironda, is inextricably linked to wine, to vines, and to the hills, where her grandparents toiled for all their lives, followed by her father in his youth. In the year 2000, Susanna and her husband decided to go back to their roots and now she and her husband work full-time, cultivating their vineyards and producing their own wine. Even though La Gironda is a relatively new winery, the Azienda Agricola La Gironda has already won a whole array of awards and their wines are on all the most important Italian wine guides, as well as being appreciated on the international stage. The aim of the winemakers is to produce the best wine they can in the simplest, most natural way possible so that it is the true expression of where they live and work: Nizza, the heart of Piedmont!

Great care was taken in the choice of the vineyards, as location is an essential factor for the production of superior wines. La Gironda lies in the very heart of Monferrato, at the center of the most important and prestigious wine-making area in the Asti district, at an altitude of about 200-400 meters above sea level where the soil, the vines, the climate, the culture, and the tradition come together to express the “terroir,” one of the most important in the region of Piedmont. The winemakers cultivate and tend the 7 hectares of vines with maximum respect for the environment.
