Marchesi di Gresy

  • Italie


The Marchesi di Grésy domain has been owned by the di Grésy family since 1797. The domain consists of 4 different properties in Langhe and Monferrato in Italy: Martinenga, Monte Aribaldo, La Serra, and Monte Colombo. At the time, the tradition in Langhe was to sell the grapes to the best wine producers of the region. It was not until the 1970s that Alberto di Grésy realised the potential of his vines and began to make wine with his own grapes in 1973 for his very first vintage. To reduce their impact on the environment, the domain’s cellar is located underground to take advantage of the natural insulation and hygroscopic soils. Part of the cellar’s roof and car park have been covered with solar panels which covers all their energy needs for the whole year. On the terrace, they have chosen to plant a big aromatic garden for aesthetic purposes during tastings but also to help preserve the microclimate and biodiversity.  Martinenga is the only experimental vineyard in the Barbaresco region where there are 11 different clones closely monitored by their team and the National Research Council. The purpose of this research is to discover the many secrets these grapes have to reveal and to analyse how different clones react to climate change.
