We are in a small town in the northeast of Piedmont, surrounded by hills and mountains, not far from Monte Rosa and Turin. We are at Pietro Cassina and his winery in Lessona, about 20 minutes from Biella.
Pietro welcomes campers and offers his guests tastings and guided tours and opens the doors of his reality to us, let’s follow him …
Pietro Cassina winery in Lessona
On a property of about 7 hectares of vineyards, as well as woods, Nebbiolo finds the perfect microclimate to be the best wine in these areas.
We also find other important local indigenous wines such as Vespolina, Croatina, Erbaluce and Uva Rara.
The peculiarity is that both the woods and Monte Rosa protect the vines from too cold winters and too hot summers.
Around the cellar there is a natural oasis that helps preserve the microclimate and biodiversity of the place by protecting insects, especially bees and earthworms, which contribute to pollination and the regulation of harmful parasites in the vineyard.
Tradition, Passion and Ambition by Pietro Cassina
Pietro Cassina personally leads, together with the contribution of his wife and children, the small company, continuing to maintain the ever-improving quality of wines as a philosophy.
In its cellar there are elegant wines suitable for both daily consumption and for the big occasion.
The peculiarity of the winery
Let’s take Peter’s words directly
“Always very attentive to sustainability, we vinify in a three-level underground cellar using the gravity method, moving grapes, must and wine from one level to another without using pumps, avoiding stressing the product. In addition, the thermal inertia of the underground walls avoids the artificial conditioning of the internal temperature of the cellar ”
For this reason and much more it is worthwhile to travel to get to know this reality, take advantage of the stop and the various tastings.
