BOOK A VISIT

The historic cellars


After the fall of Napoleon and the dismantling of his army, a few officials to the Langhe due to is proximity to France. Experts in the techniques of war, including the construction of fortresses, in many countries they had designed fortified buildings that used to be noble dwellings and often hosted cellars for the winemaking of the renowned vineyards in the area.

The Rocche Costamagna cellar was built in the immediate years following the Congress of Vienna and the 19th century facility is still preserved. The ground floor, where the stables used to be, houses the Enoteca (wine shop), the museum and the Libri da Gustare Library.

The old barn is now the home of the Art Suites, while the basement is dedicated to the refinement of wines as it has optimal temperatures and humidity. The walk in the cellar is striking withthick walls of brick and Langhe stones framing a rows of Slavonian oak barrels and thousands of bottles left to rest.

A panoramic visit


The ‘sea’ of the Langhe, with its colours that change with the seasons, misty woods, thick fog, villages of stone and brick whose mighty towers and imposing castles peek through the shroud, is a breathtaking panorama. The vineyards are treated as secret gardens and in the background, the peaks of the Alps glitter, sprinkled with snow. The Rocche Costamagna winery offers a unique visit through this surrounding landscape, a view that sweeps over the hills, today recognized as a Unesco World Heritage Site for their beauty and for the harmony that has been established between human work and nature. A panorama of the heart!
