Cascina degli Ulivi Semplicemente Bianco 2020



Details of wine

The Cascina degli Ulivi winery is located in the heart of Monferrato, on the Gavi hills, an area with a strong wine vocation in the Piedmont region.
A winery born from the inspiration of an eccentric winemaker, Stefano Bellotti, who in 1977, at only 18 years of age, took over the family business and decided to marry an ecological vision of agriculture.

In 1984 the Cascina obtained the Biodynamic Certification and since then it has been able to tell the territory in a truer way, coming out of the laws and market rules that have defaced it.

Unfortunately Stefano Bellotti, although he still had much to give to this land, left us prematurely but in the excellent hands of his daughter Ilaria who grew up among these rows.

The Simply White is a wine suitable for everyone, simple and great to drink. One of those non-committed whites, to drink while walking barefoot on a lawn, would have been ideal during the scene in which Julia Roberts and Richard Gere walk in Central Park in Pretty Woman.

A carefree white!

In 1977, just eighteen years old, Stefano Bellotti took over the family farm, located on the border between Piedmont and Liguria, in Novi Ligure. The farm, owned by the Bellotti family since 1930, resides within the Gavi DOCG and was used by his medical father to escape from the city. Stefano began with several crops and a risicato hectare of vines; moreover, thanks to the meeting with one of his first masters, Pietro Toccalino, a neighbour, he learnt the basics of winemaking. Two are the crucial choices of Stefano that radically characterize everything that today represents Cascina degli Ulivi: the first is the way of viticulture, partly forced by the morphology and physiognomy of the soils, acid-ferrous clays, not generous and difficult to cultivate; the second is the ecological agricultural approach, a choice also political, of those times considered strongly anti-progressive, and therefore more difficult than ever. But over the years Stefano realized that he was not alone and began to meet like-minded colleagues, first teachers and then fellow travellers, including Alfredo Roagna, a historic Barbaresco producer, Luigi Brezza, Italy's first biodynamic farmer, and Jean-Pierre Frick, an Alsatian biodynamic producer. Today Stefano Bellotti is remembered as one of the pioneers of natural wine, as well as an ambassador of biodynamic agriculture.
