Monferrato is a territory rich in history, luxuriant nature, a deep food and wine culture and ancient peasant traditions.
In the villages, mainly built with tuff and Cantone stone, the traces of the Gonzaga, Savoy and Saracens are still present today.
The culture of wine is very rooted and already during the transition between the Middle Ages and the modern age the specialization of the winemaking practice has been developing more and more. Suitable environments were needed for a properly conservation of the bottles of wine and in the noble residences of bourgeois families there was no lack of space. Often located under the cellars, dug underground, the Infernot were hand-built.
The perfect historical preservation of the villages, together with the hills covered with vineyards and the extraordinary uniqueness of the Infernot, earned Monferrato Casalese, better known as Monferrato degli Infernot, the nomination of U.N.E.S.C.O Heritage in 2014.
Cella Monte was included among the Most Beautiful Villages in Italy and Rosignano Monferrato was awarded the Orange Flag.
Despite all these important awards, Monferrato has remained unchanged over the years.
Here everything is tradition and “local”.
You will not find the classic “tourist” restaurant or extremely inflated places.
All along your stay you will experience a total immersion in Monferrato life.
