On the gentle hills of Casalese side of Monferrato, which has recently become a UNESCO World Heritage Site, thanks to mild climate conditions and excellent soils, the Leporati family continues the historical cultivation of the vines mainly focusing on native grape varieties such as Barbera, Grignolino, Freisa, Bonarda, Cortese. The wines produced are a true expression of the “terroir”, but they are worked in a modern way. Their freshness, cleanliness and naturalness are the result of valuable enological practices.
The Bottazza farm adheres to the Piedmont Region’s technical guidelines for voluntary integrated production (“new 2078”) SNQPI.
Integrated production is defined:
“that system of agri-food production that uses all methods and means of production and defense against the adversity of the agricultural production, aimed at reducing the use of synthetic chemicals and rationalising fertilisation, with due regard for the environment and the ecological, economic and toxicological principles”.
The production of energy that feeds the company’s work sector, is produced at 60% by a photovoltaic system positioned on the roof of the Cantina building Leporati Vini.
