Martino Massoglia and his father Battista founded this company that initially built barrels for the conservation of wine, demonstrating
an attachment to the land, to the rural world and to an ancestral knowledge made of experience and intuition.
Their goal was not only to satisfy the winemakers of the time but also to own their own winery in the best areas.
We have been a family business for over 30 years. We dedicate 365 days a year to the management of our vineyards, from dry pruning to green, to extrapolate the grape juice from the grapes and make it become wine. The vineyards are all from the hilly area of Alghero, very suitable for the cultivation of the herbaceous and barbera. Following the ancient traditions of winemaking over the years, we have modernized the winery and the management of the vineyards. Today we have about 8 hectares between rows and pergolas.
The Erbaluce is a local Piemontese grape with a white berry. His name is born from the fable of Albaluce. The legend says that the Sun and the Moon were in love, but they could not meet each other. Felon was an eclipse and from their passionate encounter was born Albaluce, so beautiful that the inhabitants offered her all manner of gift. From the tears of Albaluce were born vine-branches with bunches of white grapes, the Erbaluce.
In fact, it seems to be an original variety right from the area of Canavese and for centuries cultivated in these lands. It is a vigorous grape and productive, with clusters of elongated form from the berries of a bright yellow color. The Erbaluce is an aromatically intense and very interesting for its great ductility.
