Cascina Sòt, wine tasting in the Langhe
How would you like to savour a day amongst the marvellous vineyards of the Langhe area and taste excellent wine? Then Cascina Sòt is the destination for you.
Founded in 1975, Cascina Sòt is a farm in Monforte d’Alba committed to producing great Piedmont wines with the utmost dedication. After many years spent working as sharecroppers on the farm, Maria and Giuseppe decided to buy the property. With their son Leonardo and his wife Silvana joining the business, wine production became the family’s main commitment.
Today, Cascina Sòt produces the finest Piedmont wines in its very own vineyards, including Barolo, Dolcetto d’Alba and Barbera d’Alba.
The tastings include 3 different phases:
Upon arrival to Cascina Sòt, guests are greeted by Maurizio, Lorella, Silvana or Leonardo who then accompany visitors on a tour of the most accessible vineyards. Set out on a discovery of how we care for our vines and especially our land. The visit will start in the vineyards, from where we will proceed to show you the differences between the various vines and the different types of wine-making.
After visiting the vineyards, the tour will move to our cellars, where we will show you every step of the vinification process. Here, our wines come to life, becoming structured before maturing and being refined. We at Cascina Sòt are very attentive to the environment. To control temperatures during fermentation, we have designed a heat exchanger. Taking advantage of the low temperature of an ancient well, the stabiliser guarantees tartaric equilibrium availing of the cold of winter. Thanks to the use of this technology, there is no need to consume energy nor do we produce carbon dioxide.
Following the cellar visit, guests will have the opportunity to taste our fine wines, as the fruits of our passion and hard work. During the tasting, all of the characteristics and unique aspects of each wine are illustrated. Guests will also have to chance to ask questions in order to reveal all the secrets of Piedmont’s wines.
The wine tasting will be accompanied by a platter of local cold cuts and cheeses.

– Piemonte Chardonnay
