Walter Massa is one of the greatest promoters of the rebirth of Timorasso, a historic Piedmontese vineyard that is recovering prestige among the natives of this area.
The product of this renaissance is the Costa del Vento which stands as one of the most excellent white wines produced in Piedmont.
Very complex wine, but of great value and which manages to blend in an excellent way all the potential of this grape variety. Sapidity and minerality are two characteristics that emerge during its tasting accompanied by floral notes and an elegant and persistent finish. The elegance of this wine goes well with delicate fish and cheese dishes.

Walter Massa is an independent and courageous vintner who, from the 70s to the leadership of the family winery has managed to change and revive the wine face of an entire area, that of Tortona hills. The biggest merit of Walter Massa, a figure almost become legendary and considered by many colleagues as a master, was to rediscover a vine that threatened the extinction, Timorasso, sensing the great potential and obtaining memorable wines. Vineyards Massa is the name of the family cellar, founded by Walter ancestors in 1879, which today boasts 23 hectares of property on the hills of Monleale, about 300 meters above sea level. We find the typical vineyards of the territory: Barbera, Croatina, Freisa and above all Timor- lo, which are reserved for 10 hectares. In line with the long family and territorial tradition, these vineyards are cultivated with dazzling attention and far-peasant farmer, minimizing treatments. Enemy of all forms of bureaucracy and always against, Walter is convinced that wine is made in the vineyard and in the cellar and not with brands and documents, why he chose not to use names for many of its labels, thanks to its well-established reputation true artisan of wine. Walter Massa's production line is represented by Timor-louis, which by the name of Derthona has now been imposed throughout Italy as white wine typical of the Tortonese Hills. Nevertheless, there are even great red wines, produced with Freisa, Barbera or Croatina, it is in this case unique and unconventional wines, the result of skill and creative flair Walter Massa: real oenological pearl of an area with very high potential.
