Tenuta Foresta is a family-run winery on the Monferrato hills, with 3.5 hectares of Dolcetto, Barbera, Grignolino, Chardonnay and Albarossa. While they released their first wines in 2012, most vines are much older and were planted in the 1970s by the previous owner. The estate in this beautiful part of Piedmont, the town of Nizza Monferrato, is a young and dynamic winery, working as naturally as possible. No filtration of any kind, and without any additions of sulphites. With a total production volume of about 16 thousand bottles per year, they focus on quality rather than quantity.
At Tenuta Foresta, they invest in the indigenous grape varieties that are so well matched to the soils, like Grignolino and Albarossa, and we're very proud to be able to offer these unique wines in Ontario.
The beautiful classic labels are designed by Kiko Perotti, a Verona born artist, who has had a lifelong passion for nature which has taken him across the globe.
