Pinot Noir has a more than 150-year history in Oltrepò Pavese. Count Augusto Giorgi di Vistarino was the first to plant French clones in Oltrepò Pavese around 1860. Today, Oltrepò Pavese is the largest Italian Pinot Noir producing area, boasting about 3,000 hectares of Pinot Noir. The higher Versa Valley, where our winery is located, offer s the perfect soils, altitude (up to 550 m AMSL) and climate for the growing of the Pinot Noir clones suited for Metodo Classico sparkling wines.

These are the keywords of our philosopy of production. The Calatroni winery is a small, family-run winery located on the hills of the village of Montecalvo Versiggia in the Versa Valley, in the heart of Oltrepò Pavese. The winery was founded in 1964, when Luigi Calatroni, at the end of his tenant-farming contract, bought a vineyard from his former landowner. In the following years, the winery developed under the guide of Fausto and Marisa Calatroni. Now, with the third generation of vinegrowers, the experience of the tradition is enriched by the modern agronomic and oenologic techniques brought by the young brothers Cristian (34 years-old) and Stefano (29 years-old).
The constant technical improvement led to an ever-increasing quality of the grapes we grow in our own vineyards. The property vineyards (about 15 hectares) are located in Montecalvo Versiggia at an altitude varying from 180 to 320 metres above mean sea level, in an area very suited for the growing of several grapes.
We really hope that our work and passion will help raising the profile of the Oltrepò Paves as a quality wine region. Our region has a great potential, but its still not fully developed.
The Oltrepò Pavese region is also the area with the largest production of Riesling Italico (or Welschriesling) in Italy. Nevertheless, we aimed at growing the Rheinriesling variety and were now proud to present you a perfectly varietal wine which shows all the peculiar features that made this noble grape renowned worldwide.
