WHO WE ARE
The Canato estate is located on the hills of Vignale Monferrato. At its feet lies the ancient “Fons Salera” (Salera spring), at the time famous for its precious thermal waters.
In 1700 the historical estate belonged to the nuns of the St. Bartholomew cloister and, in 1740, the Bishop of Casale Monferrato, Monsignore P.G. Caravadossi, bought part of the estate: the so-called “Baldea”.
In the 1950s the Canato family acquired the estate on lease. The family soon realized the potential of the lands, which vaunted excellent-quality soil for wine-growing, and therefore decided to purchase the whole property.
Today, Marco Canato manages the entire estate, consisting of 10 hectares of vines, where the vineyards are cultivated with rational methods in order to produce quality grapes.
GRIGNOLINO DEL MONFERRATO CASALESE
This Grignolino has unique characteristics, like the Infernot cellars in which it was kept.
BED AND BREAKFAST
The old barn has been converted into a bed and breakfast. The bedrooms, all with en suite bathrooms, have been renovated with attention to detail, using regional materials and furnishings from the Monferrato tradition.
For information on the rooms, availability and prices, please get in touch.
VINEYARDS AND CELLAR
We manage more than 10 hectares of vines, grown and cared to produce the best grapes. The grapes we harvest are processed and aged in our cellars and in our original "Infernot", the typical Piedmontese cellar carved in the local tufaceous rock.
